ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN

Thelonious Monk International Jazz Composers competition winner Tarek Yamani performs his hypnotic fusion of American jazz and Arab tarab.

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.

His album Lisan Al Tarab takes audiences on a journey from Egypt in the early 1900s to present-day New York. This concert will include reinterpretations of classical Arab muwashahat, traditional music from Mesopotamia, and original compositions based on edgy rhythms and modes from the Levant. “Shimmering spidery piano godliness…” (TimeOut)

Yamani makes his UMS debut with his trio.
