As strong band-leaders and charismatic performers Efrat Alony and Mahan Mirarab have been praised by European audiences and the Press for years.

In this new Duo they dare to think together „Outside the Box„, celebrating their diverse cultural heritage. Their originality and outstanding musicality is woven into a new shared story.

RE_shaping Jazz, its freedom and flight, Alony & Mirarab playfully follow the magical scent of their songs on to hidden musical fantasy lands -daring to look beyond, using sound, rhythm as well as silence to create a moving and memorable performance.

Efrat Alony Vocals

Efrat Alony, born in Haifa (Israel), studied composition and Jazz as well as clasical signing in  at "Rimon, school of contemporary music", Israel, at "Berklee College of Music" in Boston and finally at the "HfM Hanns-Eisler Music Academy" in Berlin, Germany. Praised by the europlan press for years, the award-winning singer and composer shines as she dynamically unfolds her music in and charming interplay between humor and depth.

For Alony art IS movement, the courage to question everything and fearlessly follow through- whichever new shape, Form or sound the journey ahead may entail.

With her album "Hollywood Isn't Calling" she won the German Jazz Award 2022 in the category Best Vocal Album of the Year as well as a nomination for Best Composition of the Year with her composition "My Shorthand Modes of Perception" 


...Längst gehört [Efrat Alony] zu den wichtigsten Stimmen des europäischen Jazz.

Efrat Alony gelingt es auch mit diesem Album, politische und sonstige komplizierte Themen so zu verpacken, dass sie wie an Luftballons befestigt zu schweben scheinen.

Mahan Mirarab guitar

Mahan Mirarab is an Iranian/Austrian guitarist, composer, arranger and music producer based in Vienna and Berlin. 

He has spent years learning about Persian traditional music as well as the indigenous sound and cultures of the country such as Arabic, African, Turkish, Kurdish, etc., while refining his skills in Jazz, western classic and popular music. Notably using fretless guitar, he specialises in blending the microtonal systems with jazz and improvised music. 

His dedication to expand his musical vocabulary brought him to Europe in 2009 where he met and collaborated with numerous musicians from all over the world


Persian Side of Jazz is one of the year’s most unique and compelling releases mainly because the stylistic blueprint of Mirarab’s compositions draw upon stylistic influences, mainly Persian folk and world music, that are exotic to stateside ears.
