A boundless celebration of music from the heart

The BBC and Time Magazine call the British musician with Azerbaijani roots a megastar. With a strong preference for Sufi music, he masters the whole range from deeply meditative melodies to pulsating, energetic rhythms. His compositions are inspired by traditional music and mystical poetry.

When Paths Meet

For this unique, international project When Paths Meet he writes completely new compositions and arrangements and works closely with chamber choir Cappella Amsterdam and the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra with his regular musicians. Yusuf interweaves their traditions, Western classical choral singing and Arabo-Andalusian music, in a joint celebration of music that transcends cultural boundaries.

When this concert had to be canceled in 2020, one song was already realized remotely with almost thirty musicians in separate studios. One , which has already been viewed more than 500,000 times online, is a promising preview for this concert. In 2022, all musicians will finally come together physically.
