Ashtabiez – Expressions

Following an extensive exchange of ideas, rehearsing and recording, a new project is born: please meet Ashtabiez! Our first single, Expressions was released in May 2023.

Ashtabiez is Victor Khaddaj, Mehrad Hezarkhani, Kuan Yu Chen, Thomas Decock, and Yamen Martini. Bringing together five distinctive musical voices through the compositions of Yamen Martini, the quintet builds on an oriental, classical and jazz background while fusing groovy rhythms with spiced chords, shaping it into a truly borderless endeavour.
