The name resonates deep with our desire to create music that will connect you to the past, present and future. Their debut album Suryaghati (Sundial in Sanskrit), featuring Iranian-American Jazz Saxophonist Hafez Modir, is an ever cosmic merging of sounds at the crossroads of Afro-Persia, jazz, hip hop, and dub-electronica. The album has been released as 2 separate EPs by Six Degrees Records (both are out now). A call to the ancient intergalactic symmetries of India, Iran and African diaspora, Suryaghati is our collaboration with the innovative, Iranian world-jazz saxophonist Hafez Modir. ZAMAN 8 is seeking to pioneer a new, vital sound - a groove with the intensity of underground hip hop, the lyrical and improvisational power of modern jazz, and the harmonic and polyrhythmic resonance of international roots music styles. With a love for the root essence of traditions and a refusal to compromise or water down, ZAMAN 8 looks beyond the beats and loops and finds original and lasting compositional and melodic elements that form a compelling and deliberate narrative structure.
