M & M, is a collaboration between Persian master kamanche player Mehdi Bagerhi and artist/percussionist Marcus Miller. The pair has recently joined together to create a new style called Afro-Persian. It is a playful blend of rhythms inherent to the African diaspora and melodies and harmonies reminiscent of ancient Persia. Together the two have crafted a new sound that is pleasing to the ear and soul. The duo is based in southern California and are just beginning this unique musical journey. They are in the process of recording a debut CD.
