A Different World, much like the marriage between Kathryn and Yousif, represents an organic amalgam of cultural traditions and musical styles . The collaboration of a classical violist and world percussionist captures disparate worlds merging. With the exception of Mr. Rao Camemi who lives in Italy, all the composers are New-York based and friends and colleagues of the duo. The music evolved from various aspects of the musicians’ lives, through casual conversations over dinner and coincidental reunions in unexpected places. The result is a stunning testament to the vibrant multicultural fabric of the city of New York and to the artistry of duoJalal.
