András plays the role of a drummer on his right hand and a percussionist on his left hand, while Mahan plays the bass lines with his thumb simultaneously playing melodies and chords with the other three fingers. By bringing together their music cultural background from Hungary and Iran, Mash is creating a new form of contemporary jazz music. Over the years András has developed his unique percussion set and he is always looking for new sounds in a wide range from everyday‘s objects to the instruments with deep traditional roots. Notably using fretless guitar, Mahan specializes in blending the Middle Eastern microtonal system with jazz. By using the electronic and various sound textures Mahan and András beautifully build a bridge between the acoustic and the electronic sound!
