La Saboteuse, the second album from British-Bahraini trumpeter Yazz Ahmed, made a global impact both critically - Jazz Album of the Year in The Wire - and commercially, with a stunning packaging concept from Sophie Bass. Yazz followed quickly with a remix of the project, collaborating with three of Europe’s eminent electronic DJ’s, and just last week released A Shoal of Souls, Yazz’s reaction to Sophie Bass’s striking artwork for La Saboteuse, dedicated to the thousands of lives lost crossing the Mediterranean Sea in recent times.

Ropeadope is proud to announce the arrival of Yazz Ahmed’s long anticipated third album, Polyhymnia, a grand work conceived as a message to the world about the history and growing empowerment of women. The album includes powerful tributes to noted women in history - Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, Ruby Bridges, Haifa Al-Mansour, and BarbaraThompson. Rich in musical imagery, Polyhymnia explores the history of these women and their struggles and triumphs, evoking the universal human concepts of forgiveness, oppression, hopefulness, and power to overcome.

Our introduction to Polyhymnia begins with the first track - Lahan Al-Mansour (Melody of Al-Mansour), released today on all platforms as a single. The song is dedicated to Haifaa Al-Mansour, Saudi Arabia’s first female film director, whose solitary voice challenges the social pressures women and girls face daily in one of the world’s most restrictive countries. The composition explores Arabic scales and rhythms in call and response conversation between instruments.


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