Show Info

Yemen Blues Music of Yemen & West Africa with contemporary funk, mambo & deep soul. Presented by: The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012 (Sept. 15, 2012 – SAN RAFAEL, Calif.) With its explosive, 21st century brew of Yemenite-Jewish song and poetry, West African grooves and American jazz, blues and funk, Yemen Blues is the most exciting new world music act out of Israel. The nine-piece ensemble creates a breathtaking musical experience, brimming with innovation, celebration and virtuosity. Conceived from vocalist Ravid Kahalani’s vision, Kahalani’s powerful voice and persona catalyzes Yemen Blues concerts into ecstatic celebrations. Raw and rooty are two good words to describe this wide-wandering Yemen Blues. At once they evoke New Orleans second-line bands, the mesmerizing and earthy sounds of West African stringed guimbri, and rocking Middle Eastern rhythms, all coursing together in a raucous party of a stage show that often morph into dance fueled frenzies. This event is co-sponsored by the Israel Center, the Israeli Consulate, and Koret Taube Center for Jewish Peoplehood.
