Listen to an exclusive playlist from Yazz here:

Yazz Ahmed is a British-Bahraini trumpet player and composer who seeks to blur the lines between jazz, electronic sound design, bringing together the sounds of her mixed heritage. Her music has been described as ‘psychedelic Arabic jazz, intoxicating and compelling’.

In recent years she has led her various ensembles in concerts around the world as well as recording and performing with Radiohead, Lee Scratch Perry, Nile Rodgers, ABC, Swing Out Sister, Joan as Police Woman, Tarek Yamani, Amel Zen and These New Puritans.

Yazz’s highly anticipated third album, Polyhymnia, was released in October on Ropeadope Records and this will be a rare occasion to experience it performed live in its entirety, by a 12-piece ensemble, featuring musicians from her Hafla band, players from the album and friends.

The music is a celebration of female courage, determination and creativity and the album has had incredible reviews – this is truly a jazz star who goes from strength to strength.
