Tarek Yamani: The Afro-Tarab Pairings Project
1 November @ 8.00 pm - 9.00 pmFree
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.
