Watch from Friday 30 April til end of May

Kinan Azmeh is the virtuosic, charismatic, and innovative clarinetist who toured with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, for which he won a Grammy in 2017. As a composer and instrumentalist, he weaves the mesmerizing sounds of his native Syria into a highly original and exciting form of haunting and celebratory Arab jazz with his first-rate ensemble, CityBand.

Lavishly talented, intensely soulful

New York Times
