Esin Yardimli Alves Pereira is dedicated to various platforms of musicianship. She performs, composes and produces in styles that expand from early music to metal to jazz. She plays most instruments that at least resemble a violin and some more, all of which can be heard in orchestral works that she produces.
She is the co-founder and the vielle player of the early music formation TWB Ensemble (The Wandering Bard) that brings together mythological storytelling and historically informed performances of renaissance and medieval music.
Aside from collaborating with countless ensembles, orchestras, bands and other formations, Esin likes to focus on different kinds of world music on her own.
Her first world music collection came out under the name “No Strings Attached (Swedish Folk Tunes)” presenting the unique style of Scandinavi music on her own, performing both melody parts with a historically authentic approach respecting the original richness of the folklore that has been associated with so much mythology and magic for centuries.
Released with a similar approach, her second world music album “Rooted (Irish Folk Tunes)” contributes to the everlivingness of the vigorious Celtic music style. Containing more than 30 traditional tunes and some of her originals, “Rooted (Irish Folk Tunes)” is the second step of a World Music journey that will go on with her future albums that are in the making.
Her third solo album “My Vielle and the Rest” is a solo statement, focused on 12th and 13th century European Medieval music, and is an exploration of how far can one reach with one melody instrument while reflecting on most hidden emotions.
Since 2018 Esin is producing music as well as making it; since then she is the sound engineer to almost all formations she participated in and her debut single The Songbook of Tchinar Vol.1 is part of her solo orchestral project where she builds everything from scratch, starting from the compositions. She also directs and produces video material and creates presentation visuals for various musical formations.
Her solo albums and other collaborations can be found on all major music streaming platforms under her name.
