‘Halaqat Impro Orchestra feat. Amir ElSaffar’

14 Dec.'22
- 19:00

What happens when you put together an international band with musicians from different European and Arab countries? Halaqat Impro Orchestra is the final chord of an intense exchange between musicians who met only five days before. They were selected from more than 100 applications through a call to bring together musicians from Europe and the Arab world. In the days leading up to the concert, they will experiment, co-create and exchange ideas in Werkplaats Walter, the pre-eminent place for experimental and avant-garde music.
Bozar has entrusted Amir ElSaffar with the task of guiding these great talents during their residency. The American composer, trumpeter, santur player, and singer of Iraqi origin is touted as an artist "perfectly positioned to bridge the gap between jazz and Arabic music" (The Wire) and as "one of the most promising figures in jazz today" (Chicago Tribune).
