Tarek Yamani Trio: "Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic" at Aaron Davis Hall
(Published: November 01, 2018)

The hypnotic fusion of American jazz and Arabic tarab music arrives in Harlem as the Tarek Yamani Trio presents "Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic" on Friday, November 16, at Aaron Davis Hall. Presented by City College Center for the Arts (CCCA), the 7:30 p.m. concert will offer music lovers a wonderful mix of re-arranged late 19th century songs from the Arabic repertoire, jazz standards and original compositions based on rhythms from the Levant by trio leader Tarek Yamani.

An award-winning jazz pianist, Yamani has earned praise from music critics around the globe and has shared the stage with music greats such as Wayne Shorter, Esperanza Spalding and Zakir Hussain. Originally from Lebanon, Yamani now calls New York home and his unique style of music, "Afro-Tarab," an enthralling harmony of American jazz and the classical Arabic music known as tarab, is a reflection of both his worlds.

The concert will feature Yamani on piano, Sam Minaie on acoustic bass and John Davis on drums. Tickets are on sale now for $25 and can be purchased by visiting www.citycollegecenterforthearts.org or in person at the Aaron Davis Hall box office Tuesday through Friday from noon to 6 p.m. For more information, visit the CCCA website or call (212) 650-6900. Aaron Davis Hall is located on the campus of the City College of New York at West 135th Street and Convent Avenue (129 Convent Avenue).
