CD & Digital

ZÖJ is an experimental cross-cultural music duo based in Australia, comprising Gelareh Pour on Kamancheh, Qeychak Alto and Voice and Brian O’Dwyer on drumkit.

The ideals of ZÖJ are firmly rooted in true expression of inter-culturalism, specifically what it means to be from more than one place.

Together, ZÖJ creates a unique and powerful sound that combines the traditional music of their respective cultures with contemporary experimental elements. Pour’s virtuosic Kamancheh playing is complemented by O’Dwyer’s dynamic and diverse drumming, resulting in a sound that is at once complex and accessible.

ZÖJ has released multiple live and demo recordings, with their debut full-length album ‘FIL O FENJOON’ scheduled for release on November 15 2023.
