Jewish Music Week Concert – Yemen Blues
May 29, 7:00 pm
Closeout Jewish Music with a show-stopping performance from Yemen Blues! One of the most exciting bands in world music today. It’s a sound unlike any other and will be a night to remember.
Yemen Blues brings a powerful energy, mixing Yemenite, West African, Latin, and Jazz influences, and what founder/singer/composer Ravid Kahalani likes to call “New Culture Music.” Yemen Blues offers a rare combination of top musicians, each from a different background and bringing his own sound and arrangements to Ravid’s compositions. Feel the exotic rhythms and intoxicating pulses, and experience funk and blues mixing with sounds reminiscent of ancient Arabic chants.
Yemen Blues keeps magic alive with a constant stream, of new songs and their world-renowned live performances!
