Yassir Bousselam Trio (Morocco, the Netherlands, Germany)
To say that the Moroccan cellist and composer is a versatile musician would be putting it mildly. Classically trained as a cellist at conservatories of music in Rabat, Paris and Brussels, he loves the classical repertoire, delves into the ethnomusicological roots of Andalusian classical music, puts together programs with poets and is crazy about jazz. He brings this eclectic mix of influences to bear in his Yassir Bousselam Trio – a Moroccan cellist, Dutch pianist and German percussionist.
On Wednesday, 28 October, Yassir Bousselam will also be the life and soul of a new programme with the Amsterdams Andalusisch Orkest.
