Ibrahim Maalouf Strikes A Chord With Jazz Audiences

I recently came across two stunning live performances by Lebanese trumpeter (among much else) Ibrahim Maalouf: One at the prestigious Victoires du Jazz 2015, where he won the 2013 Artist of the Year award, and a second one at Holland's North Sea Jazz Festival.

Virtuoso Arabic vibes in a sea of jazz make this an enticing, irresistible mix for jazz lovers and beyond. See what you think...

So this is what happened, before it all went completely bonkers...
