Born and raised in Beirut and now living in Harlem, Tarek Yamani taught himself jazz at the age of 19 and has dedicated himself to exploring relationships between African-American jazz and classical Arabic music.

An educator, film scorer, and Thelonious Monk International Jazz Composers Competition winner, he brings his hypnotic fusion of American jazz and Arabic tarab. Time Out hailed his work as “shimmering spidery piano godliness,” and The National called him an “innovative jazz pianist from Beirut who is reinvigorating the genre.” Yamani makes his UMS debut with his trio.
