Zameena-A is a half Canadian based poet from a Pakistani background who is a violinist who creates this stunning drone landscapes that pull from a deep Persian tradition and vamp it up for the 21st century. With a music that is this rich in mystery and tradition she perfectly plays with the nuances to create a hypnotic blend of sensual sounds that are complicated by her books of poetry.
‘I am a violinist/musician unearthing experimental sounds and the fusion of world styles; creating immersive soundscapes that transcend, hypnotize, and inspire.’
Playing since childhood, she has a classically trained background from the Royal Conservatory of Music, playing violin for orchestras in countries from Russia to Japan. It was breaking away from classical that saw her embrace the possibilities of the form studying Persian violin and her exploration of electronic production became the mediums in which she chose to ‘express and poeticize feeling and movement. My vision as an artist is beyond the five senses; sculpting transformative compositions that are rich in depth, texture, mood, and space.’
I have composed string arrangements for artists spanning various style such as hip hop, dubstep, neo-classical, and world fusion. The projects that I am hired for are indicative of the scope of my creative vision and the dedication I have to producing innovative sounds.
