Description

Led by double bassist Kate Pass, the Kohesia Ensemble serves as a
platform for Kate’s original compositions, which are influenced by her
passion for both jazz and Persian music. Kohesia Ensemble explores
unusual time structures and microtonal melodies, combining the sounds
of Persian flute (ney), percussion (daf) lute (saz) and oud with jazz
instruments for a truly unique listening experience.

Kohesia Ensemble’s show “Shahnameh: Songs of the Persian Book of
Kings” won the 2020 Martin Sims Award at Fringe World – a top tier
prize for the “Best new WA work that is destined to succeed on the
world stage.” Kohesia Ensemble released their debut album “Kohesia” in
2018, and was nominated for 2018 WAM Best Album, Best Jazz Act and
Best World Act. Kohesia Ensemble has performed at an array of
festivals including National Folk Festival (ACT), Illawarra Folk
Festival (NSW), Fairbridge Festival, WAMFest, Perth International Jazz
Festival, King Street Corner Pocket Festival, Margaret River Guitar
Festival and Nannup Music Festival.
