Violinist Layale Chaker was born in Lebanon, had training at the National Higher Conservatory of Beirut, studied in Paris and London, and settled in New York.

While she is a classical violinist and composer, her music is also open to the improvisation and rhythms of jazz and Arabic music; Chaker’s debut album Inner Rhyme is strongly influenced and inspired by Arabic poetry.

On her LiveStream of April 17, 2020, which is her edition of the Silkroad Home Sessions, she performs as the lead violinist with a string ensemble, accompanied on two of the three pieces by picturesque art work.

The quietly emotional music is moody and effective.

– Scott Yanow
