The East Loop is an instrumental music ensemble that combines Jazz and Maqam and likes to improvise. Lead by composer and multi-instrumentalist Wanees Zarour, the band performs his compositions as well as pieces written by Sam Mosching, Bryan Pardo and the rest of the band.

The band of composers and band leaders stands at the intersection of African American, Middle Eastern and South American music, blending traditions including Jazz, Funk, Rock, Blues and Maqam. Complex rhythmic, melodic and musical arrangements come together in electrifying performances of music that's both intricate and groovy.
