Kamancello is comprised of Iranian born Kamanche player Shahriyar Jamshidi and Canadian born cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne. Both have classical backgrounds but have developed their own unique styles and interests based on contemporary influences and genres that interest them. They use improvisation to create a unique experience with emotive pieces while both interjecting their compositional voice and backgrounds. Their performances become an instrumental conversation seamlessly weaving eastern, western, contemporary, and classical musical textures. They’ve recently performed at festivals such as Montreal’s Place des Arts for Festival du Monde Arabe, and Toronto’s Tirgan and Doors Open and have recently released their groundbreaking self-titled debut album.
