Imagine yourself seaside at a quaint café overlooking the Mediterranean – wine in hand, sun setting on the horizon, and classical, jazz and Middle Eastern music dancing all around you. On July 10, the Moira Lo Bianco Trio and clarinetist Kinan Azmeh will set a similar scene for Ryles’ World Music Wednesday.
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. Presenting music from both sides of the Mediterranean the collaboration will present pieces from Moira’s upcoming album Lunaria and original compositions by Kinan.
