Between the musical grammar of his native Tunisia and the sharpest modern jazz, virtuoso Dhafer Youssef has developed his impassioned, inimitable identity as a singer and oud instrumentalist for more than a decade.

Opening act: Yazz Ahmed
Born in Bahrain, this young British trumpet player has worked with the likes of Lee Scratch Perry, Radiohead, Shabaka Hutchings and These New Puritans. A mosaic of Arabian textures, pop and electronica, her jazz flirts with meditative trance.
