World music and jazz stylings intertwine in this unforgettable evening of two iconic performers: Mahmoud Chouki + Oscar Rossignoli.

Mahmoud Chouki is a Moroccan master guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and educator currently living and working in New Orleans. His art draws together music from around the globe, exploring how music may speak across cultural divides. In addition to training and performing around the world, Chouki began his musical training at the Conservatory of Larache at the age of eight. He continued his education at the National Conservatory in Rabat and at 18 years old, won first prize in the International Guitar Competition in Spain. Chouki is the curator of music performances at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA); the music director of “Orient Occident” music residency of Sierre, Switzerland, since 2012; and the composer of the score for the 2021 Sundance Award winning film “Ma Belle, Ma Beauty,” directed by New Orleans-based filmmaker Marion Hill. Also in 2021, Chouki was awarded 2020’s “Best Emerging Artist” by OffBeat Magazine’s annual “Best of the Beat.” In 2022, Chouki was named “Best World Artist” by Gambit Weekly. Most recently, he was invited by the Palais de l’Élysée in Paris to perform at “fête de la musique,” alongside multiple Grammy awards winners such as Jon Batiste.

Honduran-born pianist Oscar Rossignoli folds many traditions into his music, from his classical music formation to his passion for Latin and North American jazz. He’s currently based in New Orleans and works with some of the city’s best jazz musicians, such as John Boutté, Jason Marsalis, and more. He has also established his reputation in various bands, including the EXTENDED trio with Matt Booth and Brad Webb, and by leading his own quartet and trio.

The event is finished.
