Concert: AHAJEEZ JAZZ EXPERIMENT
The Ahajeez Jazz Experiment is inspired by the complex rhythmic traditions of Sawt and Bahri music in Kuwait. In addition, Ahajeez mixes songs from the folklore repertoire that merge with world jazz in contemporary arrangements, using Western instruments, harmonies and rhythmic concepts. The concert brings together Tareq Rantisi (drums, composition, arrangement), Yousif Yasseen (guitar, vocals), José Soto (electric piano), Han Belyli (electric bass) and Alex Johnson (saxophone).
