Jazz band based in Berlin, but with culturally diverse influences. Cyminology primarily perform with Persian lyrics sung by Cymin Samawatie, who has Iranian and German heritage. The lyrics are frequently influenced by classical Persian poetry. The music of the quartet is a synthesis of contemporary jazz, classical and other elements. The band is probably most noteworthy for having gone on tour in the Middle East region in 2007 and the Caucasus region in 2008 as representatives of the Goethe-Institut and for having won the title Best Band on the National Level of the Creole Global Music Contest in 2012.
