Born and raised in Morocco, Yassir Chadly is a multi-instrumental master who moves easily between the oud, gimbri, karkabas, darbuka, and other traditional North African instruments. He’s composed music for Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, while collaborating with a glittering array of innovators, from Pharoah Sanders and Dizzy Gillespie to Randy Weston and Philip Glass. Long based in Berkeley, he unveils his latest ensemble featuring oud expert Bouchaib Abdelhadi, his longtime collaborator and fellow Casablancan, and a battery of young Moroccan percussionists who have studied under Chadly and Abdelhadi since immigrating to the US.
