An exclusive preview of Polyhymnia, the forthcoming album from one of jazz’s brightest new stars. When the celebrated British-Bahraini trumpeter Yazz Ahmed is not performing with Radiohead and Lee Scratch Perry, her own music is ‘psychedelic Arabic jazz, intoxicating and compelling’. Performed for the first (and possibly only) time with the full 13-piece ensemble from the record, Polyhymnia is a tribute to six inspiring women – from Malala Yousafzai to the ladies of the suffragette movement. Her last album garnered rave reviews and made many ‘Best of 2017’ lists around the world, so this is one to watch.
