Yaz Fentazi (oud)
Samir Nacer (percussion)
Robyn Hemmings (upright bass)
The Yaz Fentazi Trio perform music that draws on the rich musical traditional of jazz, blues and North African music, built around their original compositions, the trio’s irresistible grooves and vibrant rhythm create a sizzling party atmosphere. The music is a rootsy blend of Gnawa, Chaabi and Andalusian Music.
The Guardian has described Yaz Fentazi’s compositions as having “breadth and atmosphere, and his oud soloing, which recalls the drive and dynamism of world Oud star Anouar Brahem, is often stunning.”
Yaz Fentazi was invited to perform, record and tour with the Master Drummers of Africa, Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin), Natacha Atlas, Transglobal Underground, Peter Ind, and was the main composer of Fantazia Band and more.
