Kinan Azmeh Cityband

Watch a special performance from The Greene Space at WNYC/WQXR with Syrian-born, Brooklyn-based genre-bending composer and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh , part of Carnegie Hall's Voices of Hope Festival.
Kinan Azmeh Cityband creates spellbinding music by blending classical and jazz with the sounds of Azmeh’s Syrian homeland. His dark-hued clarinet—called “intensely soulful” by The New York Times—is featured in this performance of works Azmeh wrote in response to events in Syria, the aftermath of the revolution, and ongoing conflicts in the Middle East. The cornerstone of the program is the world premiere of On Resilience, commissioned by Carnegie Hall—a new piece in which Azmeh incorporates audio testimonies from Syrians after 10 years of war and conflict.
