The Zafir Project

The Zafir Project is centered around the commissioned piece, entitled Zafir, by the Palestinian oud player, Simon Shaheen.

The Zafir Project is a sonic journey through the collaboration of Imani Winds and Simon Shaheen. There is discovery and breakthroughs; unearthing sounds and creating possibilities on the wind instruments that were not thought possible. Shaheen embodies the very mission that Imani Winds live by ~ recognizing his own heritage for inspiration, creating a legacy of original, ground-breaking work while always forging ahead and embracing many different styles in the process.

The micro tonal sounds of the Middle East make up this program, which is an aural and visual excursion to another place.

This project is available for bookings. Please contact Imani Winds with questions.
