About the Author

Born and raised in Beirut, Tarek Yamani is an award winning, self-taught jazz pianist and composer who got exposed to jazz around the age of 19.

In 2010, Tarek won the "Thelonious Monk Int'l Jazz Composers Competition" for his composition "Sama'i Yamani� which features Syrian Rasha Rizk on vocals.

On April 30th 2012, Tarek was invited to be among the 32 musicians from 13 countries to perform in the inaugural of the "International Jazz Day" held at the United Nations headquarters in New York City where he performed with the legendary Wayne Shorter and Zakir Hussein.

Since the release of this debut �Ashur� in 2012, Tarek has been dedicated to exploring relationships between African-American jazz and Arabic music by finding new ways in applying jazz harmonic techniques to Arabic rhythms and in approaching maqams using jazz vocabulary and phrasing.
This new direction in reinterpreting classical Arabic music is the main story behind his 2nd album �Lisan Al Tarab: Jazz Conceptions in Classical Arabic�.
