Tarek Yamani’s critically acclaimed album “Lisan Al Tarab: Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic” is an exploration of classical Arabic music within the frameworks of African-American jazz. The result, a genre often dubbed as “Afro-Tarab” is a performance which will take the audience on a journey from early 1900’s Egypt to today’s New York. The repertoire will include reinterpretations of classical Arabic “muwashahat” (an old Arabic musical form), traditional music from Mesopotamia as well as original compositions based on rhythms and modes from the Levant.
