Joel Illerhag is the most vigorous Bazantar-player of his generation. He is leading his own choir with five female voices that sing songs that are influenced by folk, jazz and contemporary music genres. Their music is a search for an emotional and spiritual depth in the sound, exploring new paths of playing together. And what is the Bazantar? It is a new futuristic instrument built by Joel himself in 2015. It contains 26 resonate strings that make the instrument sounds like an orchestra.
