Kinan Azmeh's CityBand

Hailed as a “virtuoso” and "Intensely Soulful" by the New York Times and “engagingly flamboyant” by the L.A. Times, and "Incredibly Rich Sound" by the CBC, Kinan Azmeh is one of Syria’s rising stars. His utterly distinctive sound across different musical genres is now fast gaining international recognition. 
Formed in 2006 in New York City, the Kinan Azmeh quartet (formally known as the Kinan Azmeh CityBand) immediately gained recognition for their virtuosic and high energy performance, receiving praise from critics and audiences alike. With this New York ensemble, Azmeh strives to reach a balance between classical music, jazz, and the music of his homeland, Syria. Azmeh's expressive clarinet meets Kyle Sanna's rustic guitar, soaring at times over the dynamic and volatile backdrop of John Hadfield's percussion and Josh Myers' double bass. Each band member has come from varied backgrounds to add their personal flair to this ensemble, resulting in a thoroughly exciting and rewarding listening experience. Their recent album "Elastic City" has toured the US, France, England, Germany, Holland, Egypt, lebanon,and Turkey.


JP Jofre Hard Tango Chamber Band

Argentinean bandoneon player-composer JP Jofre has been repeatedly highlighted by the New York Times and praised as one of today’s leading artists by Great Performers at Lincoln Center. Jofre’s first CD features 11-time Grammy-winner Paquito D’ Rivera, who recorded “Primavera,” an original composition by Mr. Jofre.

For the world premiere of his Bandoneon Concerto, the Mercury News wrote: “…he is an electrifying composer-bandoneon player.” In 2012, Jofre was invited by the Free University of Bolzano (Italy) to perform for the homage to Argentinean Nobel Peace Prize winner, Adolfo Perez Esquivel.
