The Art of the Duo

Described as a Winning Performance by the Daily Star, The Art of the Duo is a collaboration project between the award winning Syrian clarinetist and composer Kinan Azmeh and Sri Lankan-born Canadian innovative pianist and composer Dinuk Wijeratne. This project fuses elements of Arabic and south-east Asian vocabulary with classical and jazz music idioms to create a new sonic world that the legendary Marcel Khalife called wings of Breath. The duo has released their album Complex Stories, Simple Sounds in 2009 and has been touring with their recital around the US, Canada, Argentina, Europe, and the Middle-East.
