Their beautifully produced third album Long Goodbye is a relentlessly classy and high-minded affair but with a knowing rock vibe writes Grant Moon of PROG Magazine about Esthemaąs latest release. An acoustic instrumental progressive music ensemble hailing from Boston, MA (USA), Esthema has been creating their unique sound since 2006 by fusing progressive rock and jazz fusion with the sounds of the traditional music of the Balkan region and the Near & Middle East. The musicians that shape the sound of Esthema bring together both western and eastern influences, instruments, and concepts creating a musical tapestry that transcends musical genres and cultures.
With three critically acclaimed releases to date, Apart From The Rest (2007), the Hereness and Nowness of Things (2009) and Long Goodbye (2014), Esthema is currently in the studio working on their next release, Esthema Śią scheduled for release in the fall 2018.
