Yazz Ahmed is a British-Bahraini trumpet and flugelhorn player, whose music blurs the lines between jazz, electronic sound design and the music of her mixed heritage. Yazz has released two critically acclaimed albums, led various ensembles in concerts around the UK and abroad, and has also recorded and toured with a wide range of artists, ranging from Radiohead to Lee Scratch Perry.
In 2017 Yazz released her second album, La Saboteuse, on Naim Records. The album made a global impact, gaining multiple rave reviews and making many ‘best of 2017’ lists around the world, including Jazz Album of the Year in The Wire magazine and achieving the number 18 spot in Bandcamp’s top 100 albums (all genres).
