Energetic sounds between worlds. In 2010, they were one of the discoveries of the year in our Festival Marquee. Today, more than ever, Ravid Kahalani, a charismatic singer with Yemenite Jewish roots and his powerful ensemble “Yemen Blues“ stand for an open-minded Israel that is beyond power politics and where cultures can coexist. Blues, funk, rock and soul are blended with synagogue singing, Arabic Muslim melodies and West African griot music to produce energetic sounds. First-rate musicians from all parts of the world use voice and piano, drum and bass, oud and gimbri to produce a unique musical experience between the worlds.
