Famed trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf coming to Monaco

French-Lebanese trumpet virtuoso Ibrahim Maalouf will be playing the Espace Léo Ferré one night only alongside guitarist François Delporte for an evening of music that jazz lovers won’t want to miss.

Born in Beruit in 1980, Ibrahim Maalouf has transcended his early years to become one of France’s most popular musicians of the past 15 years.

His career has taken him to over 40 countries around the globe and to some of the most prestigious venues in the world. He performed in Istanbul in front of a sold-out Volkswagen Arena and at the Lincoln Jazz Centre in New York.

In 2016, he made history by becoming the first jazzman to fill the largest concert hall in France. He performed on 14th December at the Accor Arena in Paris Bercy for an historic show that sold out more than eight months in advance. In the same year, he was described as a “virtuoso” by the New York Times.

In all, Maalouf has composed and produced 19 albums for himself and other artists, winning scores of awards along the way.

The Monaco concert will feature music from the album he composed for his 40th birthday, entitled 40 Melodies, taking the audience on the artist’s journey through his past work.

The concert will be held on 23rd May at 8:30pm. For tickets and information, visit www.espaceleoferre.mc or call +377 93 10 12 10.
