avatar for Atash


Atash is not your typical world music band. While they do include the familiar rhythms of West Africa and Cuba in their sound, the band looks further east, to the music of Persia, Turkey, India and the Middle East for much of its inspiration. Although they’re based in Austin, their compositions demolish musical and geographical boundaries with a mash up that includes reggae, flamenco, Indian and European classical music, jazz and rock. The band takes its name from the Persian word for “fire,” a perfect description of their incendiary music.
