The Halaqat Impro Sessions go out with a bang. For the third and final event of this exciting series, we have put together an orchestra with artists that took part in the two previous sessions as well as newly selected ones. This group of Arab and European top-class musicians, each with their specific musical background and expertise, will convene, exchange and rehearse at Werkplaats Walter for five days before mounting the stage of Bozar.
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).
