#IRFAN brings a unique combination of mesmerizing songs and rhythms – an electro-acoustic World Fusion inspired by the sacred folk songs from the Balkans, Persia, the Middle East, Orthodox songs and musical heritage of the Byzantine Empire and Medieval Europe.
Taking power from their Bulgarian roots, the band incorporates the endless and abundant sound of the recognized traditional songs and harmonies from Bulgaria into deep and enchanting electronic landscapes with percussive and asymmetrical rhythms.
One of the main aspects of the IRFAN band is the abundant use of the ethnic female vocal exceptions, the strong male voices and the chorus.
All these elements accompanied by the endless variety of instruments with traditional Bulgarian, Balkan and oriental strings (oud, baglama, saz, santour), flute and keyboard (kaval, nay, duduk, harmonium) and percussion (darbouka, daf, bodhran, riq).
The combination blossoms into an original musical genre of World Fusion that interweaves Neo Folk and Gothic / Etheric Wave matrix with Oriental mysticism, Balkan sounds and Medieval romance in a captivating sound of crystalline beauty.
The name of the band, which originates from Sufi, represents the notion of “Gnosticism” and “mystical knowledge” and represents perfectly the unique, mystical experience of the etheric atmosphere created by their music.
IRFAN‘s recordings and their concerts lead the audience through an emotional and spiritual experience beyond time and space.
Industrial metal avantgarde band FRIG will perform at the Quantic club in Bucharest as part of a special event with IRFAN and MINDCAGE ESCAPE bands.
