Experience the ecstatic fusion of jazz and Arabic rhythm and harmonies at the Lincoln Center debut performance of pianist and composer Tarek Yamani. The “trailblazing” Beirut-born, New York–based Yamani (CNN) has earned acclaim around the world for his “luminous music anchored in jazz harmony and in Arab traditions” (Télérama). Winner of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Composers Competition, Yamani has been fortunate to share the stage with luminaries such as Wayne Shorter, Richard Bona, Zakir Hussain, Esperanza Spalding, and Antonio Sanchez.
About the Student Advisory Council
Tasked to go out into New York City to scout an artist, the Lincoln Center Student Advisory Council pitched, promoted, and produced this show. This show marks the culmination of the members’ immersion into the Lincoln Center community, provides an opportunity for a discussion on the role of the arts for social change, and raises awareness about Lincoln Center programming at their universities.
Presented in collaboration with the Lincoln Center Student Advisory Council
