Description

Join us every Thursday evening for a festive night of live music, drink specials, and easy-going REVELRY.

Today’s touring cast of Yemen Blues mainly based on Rony Iwryn, Shanir
Blumenkranz & Ravid Kahalani with changing casts of top musicians & great friends from around the world. 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 & Jazz influences and what Ravid likes to call "New Culture Music".

Expected Run Time is 90 minutes

  • "Led by the ridiculously charismatic singer Ravid Kahalani, the ensemble combines traditional Yemenite melodies and instruments including all sorts of percussion, even empty jerry cans with jazz, blues and funk to come up with a sound that's like nothing we've ever heard before."

    National Geographic

  • “With Kahalani’s soulful vocals alternating between the grit of Mississippi Delta to the falsetto of Prince-style funk, Yemen blues was one of the breakout favourites from this year’s GlobalFEST lineup”
