On June 12, the “Hermitage” Garden in Moscow warmly welcomed jazz enthusiasts as Tunisian composer and singer Dhafer Youssef gave a remarkable performance.

Youssef, who is at the forefront of contemporary musicians, delivered an exceptional musical show as part of the third “Moscow Jazz Festival,” celebrating musical diversity and creativity.

Dhafer Youssef was born in 1967 in a fishing village in Tunisia. From a young age, he learned vocal art through family traditions, growing up in an environment rich in music and art.

Youssef began his musical career in Tunisia before moving to Vienna to study music, and then to New York, where his career flourished, leaving significant marks in the world of global music.

Dhafer Youssef is known for blending Eastern and Western art, successfully liberating the oud from its traditional confines and integrating it into modern jazz music.

He has performed with several prominent global musicians such as Herbie Hancock and Zakir Hussain, and has received prestigious awards, including the “Edison Award” and the “BBC Music Awards.”

It is worth noting that the third Moscow Jazz Festival is sponsored by People’s Artist of Russia Igor Butman and continues to attract audiences with diverse and exciting musical performances until June 16.
