John Kameel Farah – piano

Baroque counterpoint, Arabic melodies and rhythms, improvisation, minimalism and electronic dance music – pianist and composer John Kameel Farah uses all these ingredients to create his music. You might even call it ‘maximalistic.’ Trained as a classical pianist, but also influenced by Terry Riley, Farah uses electronics to layer unusual sounds and polyrhythms, creating a cosmopolitan landscape. This music is expressive, dramatic, abstract and complex.
