Blending musical traditions like baroque, Persian traditional and jazz, Norwegian musician and composer Jon Balke’s orchestral project Siwan escapes easy definitions. It is simply amazingly beautiful music.

Siwan is an orchestral project, initiated and composed by the Norwegian composer and musician Jon Balke. It is a truly multi-cultural musical imagination of sorts, inspired by the poetry of Al Andalus and sung in Arabic. The word Siwan is connected to the number three, triangular or equilibrium in various existing or no longer spoken languages from the Mediterranean region.

As an orchestral project, Siwan is constantly being developed in cooperation with the musicians in the ever-revolving performing group. The first installment of the current group, Siwan Jadid with singer Kamylia Jubran, premiered at the Molde International Jazzfestival in July 2012, followed by a sextet version in 2013 with singer Mouna Boutchebak. The collaboration between musicians in the intersection of different musical experience, different genres and different musical backgrounds, is what shapes Siwan. The music stems from similarities in musicianship of contemporary players from different traditions like Baroque, Maghreb, Persian traditional and jazz traditions, but is not academic or historical in itself.
