“Lavishly talented, intensely soulful…” --- The New York Times

When the Vermont Humanities Council called and asked if we would like to partner to present a musical event as the finale of their annual Fall Conference, we were intrigued. When they mentioned that the theme of the conference was Searching for Home: Journeys, Quests, and Migrations, we thought of the perfect artist. Kinan Azmeh is the virtuosic, charismatic, and innovative clarinetist who toured with Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project, for which he won a Grammy in 2017. As a composer and instrumentalist, he weaves the mesmerizing sounds of his native Syria into a highly original and exciting form of haunting and celebratory Arabic Jazz with his first-rate ensemble, CityBand. For those who loved last year’s extraordinary Dreamers’ Circus, this is the same kind of springboard from global music that takes the audience on a musical journey that is unforgettable.
