Faran Ensemble is a three member group, joined together on a spiritual journey of harmonies, sounds and landscapes.
They use esoteric instruments of ancient eastern cultures as tools for creating their compositions, where both East and West are present.
We see music as a journey, accompanying man across mountains, dunes, forests, beaches, and all the way through to the ruckus of the urban route.
Each note a milestone, each tone a path.
Our music is a gift of the heart, wrapped in sounds and tied with a bow of delicate strings of the soul.
Be the inspiration as it will; desert, ocean or city, they all speak of love. Love of places, people and life, for all the inspiration that they are.
