SEE YOU THERE,


The passionate and magnetic Yemeni-born Israeli singer Ravid Kahalani ('the Yemenite Mick Jagger') leads a roaring group that merges West African rhythms and ancient Jewish Yemeni melodies, mambo and funk. The group has been making huge waves of late, appearing in Paste magazine's list of 10 International Acts to Watch and performing a captivating, star-making set at globalFEST, the most prestigious world music festival in America. With members hailing from Israel, Finland, Uruguay and the U.S., Yemen Blues captures myriad global influences, blending them into a highly danceable, soulful and raucous stew.

Ravid Kahalani vocals, gimbri
Itamar Borochov trumpet
Shanir Blumenkranz bass, oud
Itamar Doari percussion
Brian Marcella, piano

This amazing Israeli world-music ensemble had everyone dancing at the aisles at the Somerville Theater in 2011. Imagine them in a club.

Presented in partnership with The Israeli American Council.
