Description

Tarek Yamani is a Lebanese-American, New York-based pianist who taught himself jazz at the age of 19. He has been dedicated to exploring relationships between African-American Jazz and classical Arabic music which are most evident in his second album Lisan Al Tarab: Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic, and in Peninsular which fuses jazz with quarter-tones and the rhythms of the Arabian Peninsula.

“Trailblazing pianist transforms Khaleeji music.” — CNN
“A revelation… an organic hybrid of ecstatic proportions” — NYC Jazz Record
“Yamani plays jazz piano with more than a hint of Arab influence.” — The New York Times
“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
