Esthema, a World Fusion ensemble out of Boston, MA (USA) creates their unique sound by fusing elements from the traditional music of the Eastern European Balkan region and the Near & Middle East with Progressive Rock and various styles of Jazz. The five musicians that shape the sound of Esthema bring together both Western and Eastern influences, instruments, and musical concepts. Members of ESTHEMA have spent a lifetime cultivating their individual musical voices. Onur Dilisen (violin) was born, raised, and began his studies in Turkey. In May 2009, Onur graduated from the Boston Conservatory with his Master’s Degree in violin performance. Tery Lemanis (oud & bouzouki), a graduate from Berklee College of Music’s guitar performance program studied bouzouki, oud, and Byzantine music in Greece as part of Berklee’s exchange program. Bruno Esrubilsky (drums & percussion), from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has studied, taught, and toured throughout Europe (Ireland, England, Portugal, Belgium, and Spain), Brazil, and the States and is currently enrolled at Berklee College of Music, majoring in Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production. Ignacio Long (bass), born in Patagonia, Argentina, has studied, taught, and performed in Buenos Aires, New York, and Boston. In 2007 Ignacio graduated from Berklee College of Music where he majored in Composition and Film Score. Andy Milas (guitar) has studied privately with some of Boston’s most acclaimed guitar instructors - Joe Stump, Garrison Fewell and Bruce Bartlett

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
