Copied from the HYMM band's Facebook page:

"HYMM was founded by Bijan Maysami, Soroush Rezvani, Irfan Aydogdu, and Omid Ebadi in Protected content Calgary.
Current members of HYMM include:
Bijan Maysami (Santoor), Brent Van Dusen (Percussion & Drum), Aya Mhana (Oud & Vocal), Paya Salem (Violin), Frank Rackow (Clarinet Saxophone), Vahid Jahanshahi (Acoustic Guitar), Greg Goldenberg (Bass Guitar), Sara Seyedi (Vocal)
HYMM combines traditional melodies from around the world with modern composition to create music that appeals to a wide audience. Based in Calgary, these musicians come from diverse backgrounds to combine the musical traditions of the Middle East with influences of jazz, blues, klezmer, and western pop music. The group features the sound of the traditional Iranian Santoor and the Arabic Oud, combined with electric bass, guitar, clarinet saxophone, percussion, and vocals.
HYMM offers its audiences an east-meets-west experience, with the hope that their message of peace and togetherness comes through. Their band is a shining example of how different people from different backgrounds can come together to collaborate and create something amazing. In their minds, those who create together speak one language, and that language is art.
HYMM members come from Iranian, Russian, Syrian, and Jewish backgrounds. They are all too aware of the conflicts reported in the news in these regions, and like to think that they are able to show instead how people can come together. In their view, differing backgrounds don’t have to mean conflict, and can represent peace and what we all have in common instead."
