Jazz & The Creative Influence of Islam: Living Legacy: Dr Yusuf A Lateef’s Autophysiopsychic Music
Living Legacy: Dr Yusuf A Lateef’s Autophysiopsychic Music
This ongoing series highlights the contributions of Islam and Muslims in the birth and continued growth of jazz. These discussions and concerts are fundamental to changing conversations and attitudes about “belonging” in the history of jazz for Muslims and for other marginalized groups.
Our fall 2022 Jazz & The Creative Influence of Islam series is curated by Asad Ali Jafri
and made possible with support from the Humanities New York SHARP Action Grant
