Performing together since 1979, Jorge Strunz and Ardeshir Farah infuse their ethnic roots along with flamenco, classical and jazz elements into a highly virtuosic, rhythmic, improvisational and wholly unique sound. Originally from Costa Rica and Iran, Strunz & Farah have originated an exotic style, incorporating the cultural riches of Latin American and Middle Eastern music.
