Tarek in concert 2021
Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic
Friday, April 30th | Virtual Presentation
“Luminous music anchored in jazz harmony and in Arab traditions. No kitsch postcards here, but a joyous and thoughtful vision. ” — Télérama
City College Center for the Arts is pleased to share this video concert originally filmed in Aaron Davis Hall on November 16, 2018 featuring the Tarek Yamani Trio Tarek Yamani on PIano Sam Minaie on Bass John Davis on Drums
Ah Ya Zein (Afro Dabke Style)
The original concert was made possible with a generous grant from West Harlem Development Corporation.
Born and raised in Beirut, Tarek is a Harlem-based, Lebanese-American award winning composer and a jazz pianist sharing his brilliant sounds of Afro-Tarab Jazz in this Aaron Davis Hall debut concert.
Critically acclaimed for music that is “full of poetry and mysticism”, Tarek ingeniously bridges the boundaries between two eclectic cultures and musical heritages creating a sound and style unlike any other.
