- Murat Coşkun: Frame Drums, Hang, Percussion, Voice
Merasim (Eng. celebration, ceremony, ritual) is a percussion project of the percussionist Murat Coskun together with the virtuous master drummers from Isfahan, Mohsen Taherzadeh und Maryam Hatef. The three musicians met for the first time during the Tamburi Mundi Festival in Turkey. They invite their audience to their own musical celebration. With lots of energy and fun, they masterly succeed in lending a vivid soul to their instruments and music. Although, they do not only scoop into their Turkish or Persian traditions. Their music generates a sensitive and spiritual deepness, far away from a too exaggerated spirituality, and thereby coalesces a link of pure life energy, concentrated seriousness and a good dash of humor.
