performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Womad and the Ealing jazz festival and uk’s venues like 606, Ronnie Scott, jazz Cafe, Hackney empire, Royal festival hall, Barbican, etc… well as internationally


Yaz Fentazi composes in his own words “a blend of traditional with modern music.” It is a uniquely clever and contemporary style of North African fusion, coming from a long tradition of absorbing influences. (SEN Magazine)


The Guardian has described Fentazi’s compositions as having “breadth and atmosphere, and his oud soloing, which recalls the drive and dynamism of world oud star ‪Anouar Brahem, is often stunning,”. (Guardian).

He has been invited for tours and recording with many artists including The Master drummers of Africa, ‪Robert Plant (‪Led Zeppelin), ‪Natacha Atlas, Trance Global Underground, ‪Peter Ind, ‪Marc Almond, ‪Cheb Mami, Jim Palmer (Robert’s son) and spoken-words with the actor Peter Marinker and more.
