We’re delighted to announce that The Jazz Cafe will be hosting Yazz Ahmed performing with her quartet for jazzed live and Women in Jazz.
Through her music, British-Bahraini trumpet player, Yazz Ahmed, seeks to blur the lines between jazz and electronic sound design, bringing together the sounds of her mixed heritage in what has been described as ‘psychedelic Arabic jazz, intoxicating and compelling’.
Yazz’s 2019 album, Polyhymnia, (Ropeadope Records) was voted Album of The Year at the 2020 Jazz FM Awards. Making many ‘best of year’ lists and garnering multiple rave reviews, the release builds on her growing reputation as a notable composer with a strong individual voice, a figure at the heart of the exciting UK scene.
Her Quartet will be playing a mixture of music from her 2017 album La Saboteuse and her 2019 award winning album Polyhymnia.
”By sharing my musical response to the stories and achievements of these exceptional women, and celebrating the creativity and talents of my co-contributors, I hope to inspire others, in the words of Malala, “to be brave, to embrace the strength within themselves and realise their full potential.”
