UMS will present a free live stream party of Iraqi-American trumpeter and composer Amir ElSaffar's live Ann Arbor performance here in Hamtramck. Free food will be provided first come first serve.
Iraqi-American trumpeter, santur player, vocalist, and composer Amir ElSaffar has mastered disparate musical styles and created a singular approach to combining aspects of Middle Eastern music with American jazz, extending the boundaries of each tradition.
ElSaffar’s Rivers of Sound Orchestra showcases 17 musicians from a broad spectrum of traditions, including Western classical instruments alongside oud, jowza, mridangam, buzuq, and dumbek; together, the group creates an entirely new musical language that transcends established notions of style and convention.
This is a flexible event open to all. Please feel free to come & go as you please. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult or sibling over 16.
