More Than One Place

Garden Quartet .jpg


When you call one place home, yet you also call another place home, where are you from?

Taking inspiration from Iran, Australia and beyond, Garden Quartet creates contemporary music that is steeped in history and dares to explore the dualities of multiculturalism.

Delicate Iranian poetry entwines with pop sensibilities, as the Quartet delves into themes of place, home, love, loss and hope in original and cherished works. Led by kamancheh player and vocal virtuoso Gelareh Pour, Garden Quartet’s diverse influences carry wisdom and emotion into music that tugs at your heart.
