Michael Pignéguy & The Awakenings Ensemble featuring Dominick Farinacci

With drummer and band leader Michael Pignéguy, flutist Yassine Ayari, pianist Takeshi Ohbayashi, bassist Philip Kuehn, trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, and guitarist Enrick Adam.

This is the only chance, at least for the foreseeable future, for New Yorkers to experience Michael Pignéguy’s one-of-a-kind Awakening Ensemble live in concert. Australian composer and percussionist Pignéguy has spent more than ten years living in and around Doha, Qatar, and he’s now returning home to Australia after one final international showcase, culminating in tonight’s concert at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. The Awakening Ensemble exists to create music with artists from around the globe, using jazz as a uniting element across an entire world of musical influences, including Arabic, Latin, jazz, and classical composition. The group is anchored by Pignéguy on the drums, Enrick Deonice Adam on guitar, and Yassine Ayari on the ney—a type of flute that has been featured prominently in music for 4,500–5,000 years, making it one of the world’s oldest instruments still in use. This core trio will be joined by special guest American musicians, adding some New York flair to the cross-continental foundation. The inspired songwriting, virtuosic performances, and sheer stylistic diversity this group boasts ensures a rewarding evening for a wide range of music lovers.
