- Amir ElSaffar – vocal, trumpet, santur, modular synthesizer
In his music, the American multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser originally from Iraq explores the connections between Arab traditional music and jazz idioms and improvisation. The Chicago Tribune considers him one of the most promising voices on the music scene, and Voice Magazine describes his performances as an elegant, meditative, refined and daring musical experience.
