Yazz Ahmed - La Saboteuse

LONDON Kings Place (Hall Two)
90 York Way
N1 9AG


The live London launch of her most recent Naim CD, trumpeter and composer Yazz Ahmed takes a further step in a musical journey that embraces her Bahraini roots alongside the new moves and grooves of todays jazz radicals.  Undulating rhythms and melody resonant with the sounds and sensations of the Middle East, and her own sonorous trumpet lines, combine in music of cinematic breadth.

‘Ahmed takes you on a beautiful journey of forward-thinking jazz compositions.’ (Twistedsoul)

‘A potent mix of post-bop lyricism and modern fusion soundscaping makes connections with both head and heart.’ (Bandcamp)

Part of our 25 for 25 commissioning programme
British artists supported by PRS Foundation Talent Development Partnership with Serious

‘Trumpeter Yazz Ahmed brings her band. with a wonderful mix of influences from her Bahraini roots, to compelling contemporary influences. Her band's packed with talent and I look forward to hearing one of the most exciting albums of the past year ‘La Saboteuse’ out live.’
