Clarinet player and composer Kinan Azmeh is internationally renowned for his intense, spirited performances. The Syrian born musician uses music to transcend cultural barriers, for example in Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, with the New York Philharmonic and with the well-known Dutch trumpeter Eric Vloeimans. In New York he formed the Kinan Azmeh CityBand, a four-piece band that balances between classical, jazz and Middle Eastern music.
