Event Description

We are thrilled to have Yaz Fentazi with Robyn Hemmings return to our stage on 30th November!

Yaz Fentazi (oud) & Robyn‬ Hemmings (upright bass) perform and give the audience a magical sense of ‘travelling’ in their minds with their very colourful and rich music that draws on the vast traditions of jazz, blues, classical and North African/Middle Eastern.

Built around their original compositions, the Duo’s irresistible grooves and vibrant full sound create a sizzling party atmosphere. They have appeared many times on BBC radio and TV, have performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Womad and the Ealing jazz festival and uk’s venues like 606, Ronnie Scott, Jazz Cafe, Hackney empire, Royal festival hall, Barbican, as well as internationally

Yaz Fentazi composes in his own words “a blend of traditional with modern music.” It is a uniquely clever and contemporary style of North African fusion, coming from a long tradition of absorbing influences. (SEN Magazine)

The Guardian has described Fentazi’s compositions as having “breadth and atmosphere, and his oud soloing, which recalls the drive and dynamism of world oud star ‪Anouar Brahem‬, is often stunning,”. (Guardian).

In the early 90’s when graduating with a music technology Diploma in London he released two albums with Fantazia Mimouna Records and Harmonia Mundi. He has been invited for tours and recording with many artists including The Master drummers of Africa, ‪Robert Plant‬ (‪Led Zeppelin‬), ‪Natacha Atlas‬, Trance Global Underground, ‪Peter Ind‬, ‪Marc Almond‬, ‪Cheb Mami‬, Jim Palmer (Robert’s son) and spoken-words with the actor Peter Marinker and more.
