Jeroen van Vliet piano

When Jeroen van Vliet in 2009 received the highly acclaimed Composition Assignment form the North Sea Jazz Festival, he formed a group named Sikeda, and one of the key members of that group was Iranian born German percussionist Afra Mussawisade.

In 2018 they met again and did a duo-concert at the Beauforthuis in Austerlitz, which marked the beginning of their new collaboration.




The duo recorded their first album for HomeRecords in Liege (Belgium), and they invited for a number of pieces the beautiful New York – based Syrian clarinet-player Kinan Azmeh with whom they both had worked before.

The album will be released 8 of April 2022 and after that concerts will take place in Germany and The Netherlands.
