Featured artist – Naseem Alatrash

Naseem Alatrash is our featured artist. Naseem is a cellist who has taken an atypical route. With a background in both classical and Arabic music, and a career carved out of playing with Indian raga, jazz and pop musicians, collaboration is at the heart of his work. He has recently taken up a post on the faculty at the home of musical collaborative performance education, Berklee College of Music. Join us to hear some of his latest music and take the opportunity to ask him any questions that you have about his work.
