The Epichorus performs Indo-Arabic roots music - contemporary music inspired by the old sounds.  They are lineage holders in classical traditions from India to Egypt and Greece, alongside Jazz and fusion aficionados.  Master vocalist Priya Darshini serenades beyond the bounds of language, moving fluidly between Hebrew, Hindi and Aramaic backed by Oud, Violin, Accordion, Hammered Dulcimer, Percussion and Upright Bass.  Come ready to be transported by ethereal music reminiscent of a loftier home.

The Epichorus released their second studio record, Najara, February 2018, with Sawdust Records!

"Epichorus’s sound is as diverse as its penchant for weaving musical legacies"

The Huffington Post

“... an excellent example of how creating culture together can promote true interfaith dialogue.”


“... a group of musicians who want to use music to express religious devotion, and find the established musical canon too constraining for one reason or another.”


"one of today’s top ten stars in new Jewish music"

CBC Radio and CBC TV

“... an eclectic mix of music and sound, and a blend of both Arab music and Hebrew lyrics”
