Yazz Ahmed Ensemble: Ahmed Family Hafla

YazzAhmed

Hafla: an Arabic word, meaning a friendly social gathering, a relaxed meeting of minds, over coffee and dates; a party; a concert.

Yazz Ahmed warmly invites you to spend an afternoon with her extended musical family, as she combines her electric quintet and vibraphone quartet for the very first time.

Featuring:
George Crowley, bass clarinet/sax
Lewis Wright, vibraphone
Naadia Sheriff, keyboards
Dudley Phillips, bass guitar
Martin France, drums
Corrina Silvester, percussion
and Yazz Ahmed on trumpet/flugelhorn

The band will perform original compositions exploring the music of Yasmeen’s Arabic heritage. Hypnotic Middle Eastern riffs, infectious belly-dancing rhythms and haunting melodies, fused with jazz and free improvisation, will create a constant flow, an organic arc to the performance, transporting the listener on an evocative inner journey.
