Acclaimed chamber musicians, violist Kathryn Lockwood and percussionist Yousif Sheronick perform together as duoJalal, dazzling audiences around the world with their artistry and synergy. duoJalal explores musical traditions that cross the globe and weave classical and world musics with western chamber music sensibility.
This remarkable blend of melody and rhythm creates a musical conversation between viola and sounds of the durbakeh (goblet drum) and riq (tambourine) from the Middle East, the West African djembe, and numerous frame drums from around the globe.
Violist Kathryn Lockwood moved from her homeland of Australia to the United States in 1991 only to capture some of the most sought-after awards in this country including the Naumburg Chamber Music Award, Grand Prize at the Coleman Chamber Music Competition, Concert Artists Guild Management Award, and awards at solo competitions such as the Primrose Competition, Washington International Competition, and the Pasadena Instrumental Competition.
Yousif Sheronick appears internationally as soloist and chamber musician with world-renowned groups and artists such as Philip Glass, Ethos Percussion Group, Glen Velez, Foday Musa Suso, Simon Shaheen, Henry Threadgill, Lark Chamber Artists and Paul Winter Consort. Sheronick's unique style encompasses traditions and instruments from the Middle East, North and West Africa, Brazil, India, and Europe. His ability to work in such diverse genres is due to having studied contemporary classical, jazz, world and rock music, which he seamlessly fuses into his playing.
An active clinician, Mr. Sheronick teaches masterclasses at home in the US and abroad. Mr. Sheronick holds degrees from Yale University and the University of Iowa, is artist in residence with Ethos Percussion Group at Lehman College (Bronx, NY) and serves on the faculty of Concordia Conservatory.
