Mediterranean Crossing

with the Moira Lo Bianco Trio and Kinan Azmeh

$10 General Admission / $5 Students

Imagine yourself seaside at a quaint café overlooking the Mediterranean  cappuccino in hand, sun setting on the horizon, and the mellow music of an expert pianist dancing all around you. On July 10, the Moira Lo Bianco Trio and special guest Kinan Azmeh will set a similar scene for World Wednesday at Ryles.

Italian-born pianist and composer Moira Lo Bianco and her trio, featuring Bruno Raberg on double bass and Guiseppe Paradiso on drums, will share the stage for the first time with Syrian clarinetist Kinan Azmeh to bring music from both sides of the Mediterranean. Playing in duo, trio and quartet, they will present pieces from Lo Biancos newly-released album Lunaria, original compositions by Azmeh, and never-before-heard collaborations honoring the spirit of cross-cultural exchange in light of Syrias ongoing human rights crisis.

Kinan Azmeh, born in Damascus and now based in NYC, has been hailed as a virtuoso, intensely soulful and spellbinding byThe New Yorker, and is widely regarded as one of Syrias rising stars. He has played as a soloist and improviser at Carnegie Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, and Opera Bastille Paris (to name a few), and collaborated with such diverse world musicians as Simon Shaheen, Marcel Khalife, Daniel Barenboim, members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and more. Moira Lo Bianco, based in Boston, earned top honors as a graduate of Berklee and has gone on to perform and arrange with oudist Simon Shaheen and the Global Jazz Institutes Marco Pignataro. Formerly based in Rome, she has played Italys major world, jazz and folk festivals, including the prestigious Villa Celimontana.
