ABOUT
Mohammad Eghbal and his group AHURA

His vision is for music to act as universal language in order to communicate between people of diverse backgrounds an dcultures. He sees sound and music as a path that may enable to grasp the underlying essence of things. Mohammds music and compostions are inspired by the poetry of eastern mystics, especially by Mevlana Djelalledin Rumi (1207-1272).

The group AHURA has been founded by M.Eghbal and is in existence since 1989. His message emphasies the connective elemtns between cultures, different relgions and ethnic groups. Mohammad tries to convey this by integrating traditional Iranian sound strutures with new sound elements.

Mohammad himself plays various oriental instruments and has had a good look at many of them in the course of his life. But the most important means of expression is his voisce, wthi which he performs and improvies mystical poems, accompanied by the almond-shaped oriental oud and the Persina reed-flute Ney.

Mohammad was born in Teheran as son of a publisher who published bookds about poetry and philosophy. While still at school, one morning he met a dervish playing on his Ney and singing verses by Rumi. This left a deep impression on him. The yearning for thi attitude towards life always remained deep in his heart.

Since then he has developed a high mastery of this demanding instrument. Mohammad did many concerta as solo artist, was part of many cross-over-projects in Europe, India and USA together with his wife and other musician-friends with different cultural backgrounds.
