From WFMU's Transpacific Sound Paradise 11/28/2009 (playlist):

A live session and interview with Cyminology, the excellent Berlin-based multi-cultural ensemble led by Iranian-rooted singer Cymin Samawatie. Cymin's fluid combination of refined Persian poetry with jazz/improv-oriented arrangements impressed ECM records honcho Manfred Eicher - who signed them up to his influential Munich label for the group's third CD, "As Ney," released earlier this year.

Cyminology's first two cds were released by the fine Cologne, Germany jazz / improv label Double Moon (not to be confused with the equally admirable Turkish label of similar name).

Special thanks to our illustrious engineer, Jeff Hylton Simmons.

Lineup:
Cymin Samawatie (Singer / Composer)
Benedikt Jahnel (Pianist / Composer)
Ralf Schwarz (Double Bassist)
Ketan Bhatti (Drummer / Percussionist)
