Originally from Damascus, Syria, Kinan Azmeh brings his music to all corners of the world with notable appearances that include the Opera Bastille, Paris; Tchaikovsky Grand Hall, Moscow; Carnegie Hall and the UN General Assembly, New York, to name just a few.  His compositions include several works for solo, chamber, and orchestral music, as well as music for film, live illustration, and electronics.

He’ll be bringing his New York “Arabic-jazz” quartet the Kinan Azmeh CityBand to the NAC!
