Yassir & the Moroccans bring a wide-ranging vision of North African concert and dance music. Born in Casablanca, Yassir Chadly has performed with his own bands and with a world of other artists on the Ashkenaz stage over the past three decades. One of the most revered world artists, Chadly has collaborated and recorded with a who’s who of greats, including Pharoah Sanders, Philip Glass, Omar Sosa, Stephen Kent, Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet Company, Steve Coleman, Taj Mahal, and flamenco musicians and dancers. He co-led the jazz-Moroccan Mo’Rockin Band with the late trumpeter Khalil Shaheed. A master of many Moroccan instruments, in this concert Chadly will use a few, likely the oud, gimbri, karkabas, and bendeer, as featured on his most recent recording, “Asheeq Zeen.” In addition to music, Chadly is a Sufi storyteller, an imam of the Oakland mosque Masjid Al Iman, and an associate professor at the Graduate Theological Union.
