Shahriyar Jamshidi + Raphael Weinroth-Browne - [second piece, part 3]

The initial pairing between Jamshidi and Weinroth-Browne on kamanche (Iranian bowed spike fiddle) and cello was one of my favourite musical moments of least year, so I was quite happy to see Somewhere There repeat the experiment. Unabashedly and unmodestly romantic, this was as emotive as it was technically satisfying. Working within the common ground they've found on their respective instruments, there seems to see a lot of space to explore. This second of two long improvisations they played is thus worth reproducing at length, though I broke it into sections for easier navigation.
