Jazzy Arabia is A Canadian Arabic Orchestra production in collaboration with the amazing musicians Andrew Downing (Cello), Majd Sekkar (Clarient) and Ernie Tollar (Saxophone).
Jazzy Arabia creates an adorable mix of Western Jazz Music and Arabic Improvisation (Jazz Type Music), creating an amazing dialog between Arabic and Western instruments.

جاز عربي هو عمل موسيقي من انتاج الأوركسترا الكندية العربية وبالتعاون مع كل من عازف التشيلو أندرو داوننج ، عازف الكلارينيت مجد سكر وعازف الساكسفون ايرني تولار. يمزج العرض بين موسيقى الجاز الغربي و ارتجالات الموسيقى العربية التي تحمل روح الجاز خالقةً حوارً رائعاً بين الألات الموسيقية العربية والغربية

Once upon a time, musical languages travelled slowly, creeping not much further than the outskirts of village, town or city. Musical wisdom travelled slowly and innovation was steeped in tried and true traditions, so quality was always preserved.

While the Silk Road may have delivered ideas to be shared over great distances the innovations and fusions spread quite slowly, the arrival of any music from far away was rare and met with interest. Arabic music’s growth over millennia was surely this way.

In America, the birth of Jazz may have given a rare exception to this slow exchange of musical vocabulary. Relatively, African Rhythm met European harmony and what some consider the first ‘World’ music Jazz – was born.

The musicians sharing tonight’s stage for the Arabic-meets-Jazz concert have had long performing careers within their respective genres. They aim to combine these traditions and look for exciting new recipes and combinations. Today’s world presents the challenge of learning and respecting different traditions and cultures, to share and benefit from each other; and, likewise, on stage there will be reverence towards the traditions but also freedom to explore what’s possible with open hearts, open ears and daring interplay.
