Yemen Blues

Yemen Blues

Wednesday 6 June 2018

Yemen Blues’ intoxicating music merges West African rhythms, influenced by Yemeni culture and melodies with jazz and funk to evoke a connection to places you may have never visited. Sitting in a musical crossroads of Middle Eastern traditions, the group paints a musical canvas with deep laments and jubilations to present a complex and resolutely modern offering.

The group are known for their energetic and powerful live performances – with hypnotic percussion beats and multi-layered sounds created by instruments from bass, percussion, brass to oud and strings. Led by Jewish Yemenite vocalist Ravid Kahalani, with a soaring three octave range, his mesmerising vocals alongside a superb lineup of talented musicians from New York, Israel and Uruguay make this one of the most engaging and exuberant acts on the world music scene.

Since their critically acclaimed breakthrough at 2012 globalFEST, to Roskilde Festival Denmark and concerts all over Europe and the US, they have collected a devoted family of fans. This Australian debut performance will deliver a visual and rhythmic feast and will be the pick of the Festival for shaking off those winter blues!

Listen back to Yemen Blues performance live on The Afterglow. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
