Tarek Yamani: The Afro-Tarab Pairings Project

1 November @ 8.00 pm - 9.00 pm

Free

Nobody does West-meets-Middle-East jazz quite like Tarek Yamani, so this short concert is a must (especially as it’s free). The Afro-Tarab Pairings Project is a solo piano performance that pairs Arabic pieces with jazz complements from a variety of genres; Yamani noticed similarities in the music of his solo repertoire – rearrangements of classical Arabic, jazz, Afro-Cuban and Brazilian Samba songs – and found their connections even more evident when the pieces were paired, with congruences not only in musical style but also in title, theme or poetic inclination. Sounds fascinating.

Yamani is also leading a three-day short course on jazz tactics and improvisation from 30 October to 1 November, 7-10pm; that too is free. Email –performance@sharjahart.org to register.
