Abstract

This article focuses on the experiences of four performing artists, vocalist Tara Tiba, saz player and guitarist Reza Mirzaei, daf and ney player Esfandiar Shahmir and tar player Hamed Sadeghi, who have moved from Iran to Australia, where they now live and work. It traces their respective journeys of migration and career development in their new country. In particular, it explores their collaborations with Australian-born jazz musicians, and how this has affected their music. Through a series of informal interviews with these musicians, this article examines their lived experience of working as musicians in Australia, and how intercultural collaborations have impacted their creative output. It finds that nuanced intercultural approaches have been crucial to the success and the nature of the music they create.
