Originally from Damascus, Syria, clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh melds music from across the globe to create an “intensely soulful” (The New York Times) sound. Having toured extensively as a member of Silkroad Ensemble, Azmeh brings his New York-based CityBand to The Barns. With CityBand, Azmeh strikes a unique musical balance between classical music, jazz, and the music of his Syrian homeland.
