NEW YORK, NY

“The pianist exploits the most expressive musical idiom of his adopted city (jazz) to explore, transform, transfigure and shed fresh light on the music of his rooted, real homeland.” – Time Out

“A magician with his chromatics and disquieting passing tones.” – New York Music Daily

Critically acclaimed Lebanese-American composer and pianist Tarek Yamani explores classical Arabic music within the frameworks of African-American jazz. The result, a genre often dubbed as “Afro-Tarab,” takes audiences on a journey from late 1800’s Egypt and Iraq to contemporary New York. For his performance at BAC, Yamani is joined by vibraphonist Sasha Berliner.
