Part of Embracing Complexity

Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh bridges cultures, musical styles, and ideas. A virtuoso soloist and improviser, he is also a sought-after composer whose work includes the score for Iphigenia Point Blank: Story of the First Refugee (presented November 1–11 by the University of Iowa Department of Theatre Arts). The CityBand quartet includes guitar, bass, and percussion and explores jazz, classical music, and traditional music of Syria. Azmeh draws deeply from a well of influences, but his sound is purely his own.
