“This season, performing arts presentations have been curated to feature acclaimed artists who have transcended fear through their art. Under the banner of “the other side of fear,” we explore the definition of fear, what it means to face fear, and how we attempt to define, confront and conquer fear in ourselves and others. Yazz Ahmed’s commitment to pushing boundaries and advocating for diverse representation in a landscape not known for a diversity of voices has resulted in the creation of something altogether unique – and widespread acclaim – and provides an inspiring model for what lies on the other side of fear.”

Join Aga Khan Museum this fall for the Canadian debut of a fearless young voice, British-Bahraini trumpet player and composer Yazz Ahmed. And, special guest Kamancello open the evening, presenting improvised music that unites the Kurdish kamancheh with classical cello and travels beyond both traditions.
