Here’s a great pianist. His name is Yakir.
Israeli-Italian, Yakir Arbib (30 years old) was born
with a visual impairment. He is an amazing
"visionary" in the art of improvisation and composition.
His characteristic of "seeing" musical
tones as distinct colors (synesthesia) guides him
in his creative process.
MY NAME IS YAKIR is an album that is both
moving, surprising and beautiful. Whether in the
rewrite of standards or his own compositions.
There is no doubt that the charm operates instantly.
Yakir is a virtuoso in a broad sense with a
very personal piano playing.
