About

Two Rivers Ensemble is a sextet of Middle Eastern jazz musicians that has made innovative strides in using the Arabic maqam modal system to transform the jazz idiom. ElSaffar, an expert trumpeter with a classical background, has been described as “uniquely poised to reconcile jazz and Arabic music” (the Wire).
