Yemen Blues’ original sound and world-renowned live performances have invented a new language in contemporary music, provoking joy wherever they play.
In 2010, singer and composer Ravid Kahalani founded the rare combination of top musicians in association with co-founder Omer Avital. The success story that followed has taken them all over the world performing and collaborating with globally celebrated bands including Oxmo Puccino and Mariem Hassan.
With musicians hailing from New York City, Uruguay and Tel Aviv, the mambo and African rhythms combine to create a powerful energy and deep foundation with lyrics that remind the audience of ancient Arabic chants with threads of funk and blues.
The simple and powerful message behind Yemen Blues’ music is basic humanitarian awareness. It is the band members’ love of music that allows this truth to shine through.
