Kinan Azmeh's CityBand
Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 6:30 pm and 9:00 pm
Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh bridges cultures, musical styles, and ideas. A virtuoso soloist and improviser, he is also a sought-after composer whose work includes the score for The Iphigenia Project (presented in November by the UI's Partnership in the Arts program). The CityBand quartet includes guitar, bass, and percussion and explores jazz, classical music, and traditional music of Syria. Azmeh draws deeply from the well of influences, but his sound is purely his own.
