British-Bahraini trumpeter and composer Yazz Ahmed performs music from her third album, Polyhymnia, a celebration of female courage, determination and creativity. 

In recent years she has led her various ensembles in concerts around the world as well as recording and performing with Radiohead, Lee Scratch Perry, Nile Rodgers, ABC, Swing Out Sister, Joan as Police Woman, Tarek Yamani, Amel Zen and These New Puritans.

Yazz's highly anticipated third album, Polyhymnia, was released in October on Ropeadope Records, and includes powerful tributes to noted women in history – Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, Ruby Bridges, Haifa Al-Mansour, and Barbara Thompson.

Yazz seeks to blur the lines between jazz, electronic sound design, bringing together the sounds of her mixed heritage. Her music has been described as ‘psychedelic Arabic jazz, intoxicating and compelling’.

"Rich, powerful, colourful, exciting and highly evocative. Ahmed’s most ambitious and most successful work to date has the feel of a ‘major statement’ about it." (The Jazz Mann)

"Further establishes herself as one of the more creative new voices in jazz with Polyhymnia. This is a first-rate, original album." (Downbeat)

This event takes place in the UNESCO City of Music Studios in the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
