Naya Baaz feat: Rez Abbasi & Josh Feinberg

This Event is in Person and will also be Livestreamed

“Producing so vivid a music that it can almost be tasted, Abbasi sounds like no one who has gone before him. His compositions are sheer genius…” (All About Jazz)

One of the most outstanding voices on the scene today is NYC guitarist and composer Rez AbbasiVoted #1 Rising-Star Guitarist in the 2013 DownBeat Critics Poll and recently awarded the 2021 Guggenheim Fellowship for composition, Abbasi has 14, mostly original composition albums to his name. Born in Karachi, Pakistan, but raised from a young age in Southern California, Abassi, was educated at USC and the Manhattan School of Music in jazz and classical music. He furthered his education in India under the guidance of master percussionist, Ustad Alla Rakha. Forging a vivid synthesis of multiple musical genres, Abassi has honed his skills across North America, Europe, and India and has performed with many jazz greats including, Grammy winner Ruth Brown, Tim Berne, Michael Formanek, Vijay Iyer, Marilyn Crispell, Greg Osby, and a host of others.

Joining Abbasi for this project, is the stunning sitarist, Josh Feinberg. A student of the Maihar Gharana school of playing, Feinberg has earned the love and respect of connoisseurs of Hindustani music, as well art-music communities around the world. Accompanying Abbasi and Feinberg are Jennifer Vincent on cello, and Ernie Adams on drums and percussion.
