Additional Information

Yemen Blues

Yemen Blues are neither Yemeni nor are they a blues band. The nine-piece Israeli-American group is a fascinating and original amalgam of traditional Yemenite melodies that deftly navigate blues, jazz, funk and more. The group is the potent outcome of Ravid Kahalani’s lifelong musical journey. After touring the world as the primary vocalist in the Idan Raichel Project, he joined forces with powerhouse upright bass player and composer Omer Avital. The result is Yemen Blues: a breathtaking experience of complex, danceable global grooves, from Bedouin rhythms to the sounds of New Orleans brass and beyond.
