Details of Yemen Blues and the Ticket Luck value
To see an ensemble of top musicians under one roof purchase Yemen Blues tickets. Described as “one of the most exciting bands in the world music right now” by Chicago Time Out, Yemen Blues have taken the music scene by storm. Providing their fans with a contemporary and urban sound, the band has come a long way since their formation in 2010.
Incorporating American jazz, soul and funk, the band’s music comes off as a breath of fresh air. The ensemble brings into the picture some of the most sought after musicians from New York, Israel and Uruguay with the mastermind Ravid Kahalani as its lead vocalist. Omer Avital, Itamar Doari, Itamar Borochov, Rony Iwryn, Rafi Malkiel and Shanir Blumenkranz being among other members. Yemen Blues merges music of Yemen and West Africa while bringing an out-of-the-ordinary sound to the table. Hence resorting to the use of oud, percussion, strings and horns. Eli, Min Kalbi, Baraca and Jat Mahibathi being some of the popular tracks by then band.
The amalgamation of music is such that The New York Times referred to the band as “an Arabic pop orchestra” and a “North American trance group”. Besides their unique sound, Yemen Blues have risen to fame due to their live concerts; performances at the WOMEX and BABEL MED music fairs in particular. Hence garnering instant international fame.
The band performed endlessly in 2011 all across the globe. They have also been chosen as one of the 10 International Acts to Watch by Paste magazine. Not only that they have made their presence felt at globalFEST, America’s most prestigious world music festival. The band not only offers a blend of musical styles but also a mixture of different languages as Kahalani says he is “using any language that sounds good with the melody”. Thus their music transcends cultural boundaries as Yemen Blues “is a language you will understand no matter where you come from.” Kahalani’s effort has indeed paid off as joining hands with bassist/composer Omer Avital landed him an opportunity to celebrate music to the core.
