“Encounters with Masters” continues to bring together master jazz musicians for new and original performances. This year, singer and oud player Dhafer Youssef, who is now considered a pillar of the Tunisian underground music, comes together with Turkey’s clarinet master Hüsnü Şenlendirici and world-renowned kanun player Aytaç Doğan. The other musicians that will be performing with these three masters will be pianist Kristjan Randalu, guitarist Eivind Aarset, bass virtuoso Chris Jennings, and one of the best percussionists of the world Marilyn Mazur.
Dhafer Youssef regards the “Dance of the Invisible Dervishes” as “a love declaration to Istanbul”.
