About the Artist
Tariq Al-Sabir is a composer and vocalist based in New York City. Since being a lead voice on the season 4 theme song of HBO’s The Wire, Al-Sabir has been described as a “boundless talent” by Baltimore’s City Hall and the Baltimore Examiner dubbed him “a rising musical mastermind.” A conservatory-trained musician with roots in gospel and soul music, he has been featured on Al Jazeera and TEDx, as well as at Lincoln Center and Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater in New York for his work that pushes the boundaries of classical music and sensitively fuses several genres.
