As part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, MARSM UK and Kings Place present Palestinian composer and pianist Faraj Suleiman with this quartet.
Born in a village in the upper Galilee, renowned Palestinian composer and pianist Faraj Suleiman has been playing the piano since the tender age of three. Influenced by his passion for Arabic music and eastern rhythms, it’s both Suleiman’s groundbreaking original compositions as well as his compelling renditions that have led him to become one of the leading composers of the Arab world.
His penchant for Arabic scales and modalities smoothly blends with his inspiration from tango and jazz traditions to create a uniquely captivating sound. Since 2014, he has released five albums alongside numerous stunning works with poets, theatres and musicals.
