On the UN International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinians, Samer Rashed and his trio will be coming from the Holy Land to tour his 2nd album Tales of Gypsy Jazz in the UK- Sheffield is one of several stops!
Samer Rashed is a Palestinian composer and viola player from Jerusalem. He graduated from the National Conservatory of Music in Jerusalem and began a challenging journey to pursue his passion in music composition, particularly for the viola. This journey led him to Istanbul, where he studied with world-renowned musicians and violinists, and was influenced by Turkish gypsy and jazz music.
This Week in Palestine Magazine, which ranked him as August’s Artist of the Month, described Samer as “the first Palestinian musician to compose a music album of this genre for the viola, which was distinguished by its upbeat rhythm and harmony, showcasing the beauty of simple yet sophisticated melodies that bring joy to listeners.”
Don’t miss out on this live performance of captivating Jazz tunes from Palestine! Profit will go to support PSC Sheffield’s Children Projects in Gaza.
