Chilean piano player, singer, and composer Benjamin Furman presents his latest project, an interesting mixture of his main musical influences: instrumental jazz, klezmer, pop, and Middle Eastern, Latin, and South American traditional music.
Singer, oud player, and composer Ahmad El Haggar presents a night of contemporary Middle Eastern music. The show will feature musicians from various parts of the Middle East and the U.S. performing arrangements of classic Arabic songs as well as some originals.
Inna Dudukina is a refined jazz vocalist with a special gift for composing and arranging. She treats her songs as internal monologues, and her jazz ensemble has a unique approach to music. The show includes originals as well as innovative and sophisticated arrangements in which well known tunes contain tricky extensions of form and unexpected changes of style and meter, or are juxtaposed with other songs.
