A welcome return to the Sheffield Jazz stage following her hugely popular 2018 Crookes gig.
Yazz Ahmed’s 2017 album La Saboteuse was widely judged to be a jazz album of the year, blending western and Middle Eastern influences. This is a rare opportunity to experience Yazz’s new album Polyhymnia, performed by her Hafla Band. The music is a celebration of female courage, determination and creativity.
“Rich, powerful, colourful, exciting and highly evocative. Ahmed’s most ambitious and most successful work to date…” – The Jazz Mann.
Expect undulating rhythms, melody resonant with the sounds and sensations of the Middle East and sonorous trumpet lines.
