Anouar Brahem Quartet: The Astounding Eyes of Rita
3 October @ 8.00 pm - 10.00 pmAED 78.50 – AED 157
The Tunisian oud player and composer, acclaimed as an innovator who fuses Arab classical music, folk music and jazz, brings his quartet to Abu Dhabi for a concert based on his excellent 2009 album The Astounding Eyes of Rita (“a richly varied and often thrilling piece of world-jazz” said the Guardian).
This is great jazz by a master with a group that knows itself so well that the music flows beautifully. The current lineup is Klaus Gesing (a multi instrumentalist, but usually on saxophone and clarinet); Björn Meyer (from Nik Bärtsch’s ‘zen funk’ group Ronin) on bass; and Khaled Yassine on percussion. The seat prices are good, too, especially for music of this quality.
