Mah Ze Tar - A Musical Fusion Project


“Inter-connected fluid trance-formations pulsate through harmonic vibrations.”

Māh Ze Tār (2015) is a musical fusion project by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Maz Karandish. This project was propelled by the vision of fusing traditional Eastern music with modern electronic composition as a form of cultural preservation.

The first project, Liquid Lotus, was an illumination of the possible ways in which musical fusion, inspired by Indian Raga music, could come into form in a way that creates a deeper connection with non-traditional listeners. The second project, Reeshe (Roots), further expanded this notion and went on to reimagine nostalgic Persian melodies, based in Radif and Maqam, with tasteful electronic additions that create a bridge for the listener. The upcoming project that Maz is now working on, “Diversity”, is expected to come out in June of 2022. More information will be shared over the coming months. Stay Tuned!

Mahzetar about
majnoon by maz

“Majnoon” is a Persian folk song grounded in Ethnic Electronic Fusion. Mah Ze Tar brings the haunting melodies of this ancient song to life with a new and exciting presentation featuring the Kamancheh, Ney, and an instrument of his own design called the Mah Ze Tar. These instruments and rich vocal layers are fused with subtle yet colorful electronic pads, sub-bass, and dynamic uplifters and drops. The song is a journey into the ancient past while holding space for the wonders of the future. Majnoon was released on 11/23/2020 and is the single off of “Reeshe (Roots)”, which is a 25 track double album that was released on 12/21/2020.
