Bill Frisell/Rahim AlHaj/Eyvind Kang

Traditional Iraqi maqams, Americana, and jazz come together through the innovation and styling of three contemporary virtuosos. Creating a sound that is lyrical, timeless, and universally appealing, Grammy Award–winning guitarist/composer Bill Frisell, Iraqi oud master Rahim AlHaj, and acclaimed violist and erhu player Eyvind Kang present an evening of East-meets-West compositions, Baghdad/Seattle Suite.
