Real Name: Matt Hillier and Jacqueline Kersley

Profile: Ishq are based in st ives Cornwall, uk and have been making music since about 1995 under various guises including 'Indigo egg , Ishvara , Elve and a few other alter egos.Ishq music skirts between Idm electronica , Deep ambience and even has some newage overtones.The emphasis seems to be on music as harmony.

Ishq means "love" in Persian and Hindi, or is a word used by such past masters as Rumi to express love of the divine and the ecstatic love of the Sufi, or lover of God and all God's creation.

Ishqs music has something of this overflowing and romatic spiritual quality and 'Beauty 'and could be summed up as music of the heart (though also of the head )

Matt and Jacqueline also run ' Virtual ' a limited edition cd label which releases their more experimental soundscape music and other studio works.
