Under One Sun – Jamey Haddad Jazz Ensemble performing “High Above” live at the Aga Khan Centre in Toronto, Canada, on December 12, 2015. This concert was part of the Arab Jazz Series.

Master percussionist Jamey Haddad, who collaborates regularly with singer-songwriter Paul Simon, composer Elliot Goldenthal, and saxophonist Joe Lovano, is no stranger to different musical styles. He can also play over 1,000 percussion instruments — from a Syrian darbuka to the Western snare. Yet his heart remains in the jazz world. On December 12, 2015, Jamey Haddad offered an evening of internationally-inflected jazz featuring an eclectic group of musicians from Palestine, Afghanistan, and Toronto, including Ali Amr (qanun), Salar Nader (tabla), Michael Ward-Bergeman (accordion), Billy Drewes (saxophone), Leo Blanco (piano), Luisito Quintero (percussion), and Roberto Occhipinti (double bass).
