A project by Bosnian guitarist Mirza Redžepagić, Nairuz blend the rich heritage of Turkish Sufi music and flamenco. The dialogue between two different musical traditions sharing the same core resonates with the soft sounds of flamenco guitar, oriental oud, Turkish ney and double bass, complemented by the sonorous Sufi singing and palmas as an essential form of percussion that helps accentuate the absorbed flamenco dance. The music they play is new, imbued with mysticism. The name Nairuz derives from old Persian and symbolises the birth of spring, the blossoming of nature.
