Nov-22 7:00pm online: Yemen Blues to rock Australia

Read on for article

Yemen Blues will be performing a new show “We Shout Love” – Say No to Racism in a special free online event presented by Emanuel Synagogue and the Israeli Embassy.

In 2010, singer & composer Ravid Kahalani founded the rare combination of top musicians we now call Yemen Blues.

Yemen Blues has been described by Time Out Magazine as “one of the most exciting bands in world music right now”.

From the start, the band created an original sound that became a new language in contemporary music. The intense musicians hail from NYC, Uruguay and Tel Aviv. This includes the core members of creation: Rony Iwryn, Itamar Doari and Shanir Blumenkranz.

Each member comes from a different background and brings their own sound and arrangements to Ravid’s compositions.

The result of this amazing group is a powerful energy that mixes Yemenite, West African, Latin and Jazz influences and what Ravid likes to call “New Culture Music”.   The mambo and North African rhythms create a joyful and deep foundation, while the vocals remind the listener of ancient Arabic chants mixed with funk and blues. Yemen Blues keeps magic alive with a constant stream of new songs and their world-renowned exciting live performances. The pandemic has made touring impossible and this will be the band’s first performance in many months. It is anticipated that it will be viewed by thousands of people throughout the world.

At 7:00pm on November 22nd they will be performing from Israel in a free online concert.

Yemen Blues has been called “the most exciting and unique live show you can see” by several news outlets including National Geographic, Time Out Chicago, NPR and many more.

“Think Prince or Michael Jackson, but Yemenite via Israel and with a hint of James Brown.” – Miriam Groner, The New York Jewish Week
