It’s a rare pleasure to find music that gives me pause, slows me down from the daily deluge and gives me a moment to think.

Descriptors like enchanting, elegant and hypnotic just don’t seem to do justice.

Rapturous . . . haunting and otherworldly.

Sensuous and hypnotic, elegant yet deeply emotional, the music of Opium Moon evokes the mysteries of ancient worlds while remaining thoroughly contemporary. The Grammy-winning Los Angeles ensemble’s cinematic soundscapes draw upon the virtuosic skills and diverse ethnic backgrounds of its members: Iranian santur (struck zither) master Hamid Saeidi; innovative Israeli bassist Itai Disraeli; sought-after American percussionist M. B. Gordy; and the exceptionally expressive Canadian American violinist Lili Haydn, whose passion and fluid mastery of her instrument enchant in every song.
With original compositions that meld sacred and classical traditions of the East and West with ancient, trance-inducing grooves, the result is stately and rapturous, a sultry and passionate instrumental music that seems to emanate from a profoundly deep wellspring.
