Zayn Mohammed

Zayn Mohammed is a UK based multi-instrumentalist, composer & guitarist. Born and raised in London, Zayn relocated to Dubai at 16 where he continued his education, before going on to receive his BA in America.

Zayn’s first musical experiences were in playing flamenco from a very young age. After a ‘rebellious’ period of playing progressive rock he became more influenced by the jazz pianist and family friend Ahmed Jamal and also the playing of guitarist George Benson. Zayn went on to study at Berklee in Boston, graduating in 2013 having been the recipient of the ‘Guitar Achievement Award’ twice. After a period in New York, Zayn returned to his hometown of London. Since then Zayn has gone on to perform with Lee Ritenour,  Olita Adams and Wayne Shorter and has opened for both Stanley Clark and Pat Martino. In 2016 he was crowned Sky Arts Guitar Star.
