Amir ElSaffar Receives 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award

I’m thrilled to announce that I am one of 20 recipients of the 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Awards! This is the second year of the program, and I am extremely honored by the recognition and humbled to be in the company of such great artists in the fields of jazz, theater, contemporary dance, and interdisciplinary art. I am grateful to God and to the Universe, and I thank the people at Doris Duke, as well as my family, friends, teachers, and colleagues (some of whom are on this list) for the support throughout the years!
