Artisena in Warsaw!

Come hang on the concert of my quintet on June 17 in Warsaw! Details on the poster:

IBRAHIM TRIO live at Manggha Museum

The IBRAHIM TRIO will debut on Sunday 21 April at the Manggha Museum in Kraków. Oriental jazz music and improvisation, EAST MEETS WEST is the syncretism of two musical worlds and an expression of the freedom that music provides to both musicians and audiences. Don’t miss this unique music experience.

The trio consists of three established soloists brought together through music and friendship: Wassim Ibrahim (oud and voice), Joachim Mencel, (hurdy-gurdy and piano) and Szymon Madej (drums).
