"While umpteen genres and styles flow through the CD, it is done seamlessly and harmoniously, in every sense of the word. .....Bet gaily crashes through cultural boundaries , and will get even the most leaden - footed of listeners tapping a toe or two at the very least." 4 stars review, Songlines Magazine, March 2012 - SONGLiNES Songlines Publishing Ltd / Barry Davis ( 4 stars )


"When AndraLaMoussia's self titled debut was release in 2005 it was a refreshing breath of air ...... Bet [the band's 2nd album, 2010] .... patently reflects a move further down the road to good old musical and artistic authenticity, with a generous helping of technical ability "......... (Barry Davis, The Jerusalem Post 20.7.2010) - The Jerusalem Post

Bio

AndraLaMoussia - Music from the streets of Jerusalem
"An Ensemble of musicians with rare stylistic flexibility, exhilarating and amazing. ..... Excellent album" (Asher Kesher, Yediot Tel - Aviv 28.5.2010)

AndraLaMoussia is a world music group based in Jerusalem. AndraLaMoussia means chaos in ancient Hebrew and, like our name, our music reflects the diverse cultural reality in which we live.
We play what we hear. During a short stroll through a street in Jerusalem you hear singing from synagogues, Turkish pop music blaring at a music shop, traditional maqamat sung at mosques and klezmer clarinet. All these and more find their way into AndraLaMoussias fun and unique music.
By mixing, along with others, Jewish and Arabic, Turkish, Greek, Sufi and Gypsy influences, Traditional tunes with Rock guitar and vibe, our sound resonates with the tension and confusion prevalent in our Middle Eastern culture. In today's world cultural differences often lead to violent clashes, but we don't think that this need be the case. Our aim with AndraLaMoussia is to accentuate the many different traditions and by doing so to create a moment of true dialogue and unity in a modern tradition.

AndraLaMoussia has released 2 albums and performed at many international events in Israel and in festivals around the world: "PetroJazz" festival, St. Petersburg, "Rythem of the earth" festival, Bangkok, Klezfest London, la Vie De la Sietta in Italy, The Israel Festival, and more. Over the years ALM had collaborated with many performers. Instrumentalists, singers, storytellers and actors, like Violinist Daniel Hoffman (Davka), Oud master Nizar Rohana , Singer and Guitarist Tamar Eisenmann, "The Bulvarians", Frank London of the Klezmatiks and more. AndraLaMoussia sounds like millenium in the desert. like a band of kelzmers travelling on camel back. a mix between Bustan Abraham, Radio Tarifa, Klezmatics, Oi Va Voi and Anuar Brahem.

"When AndraLaMoussia's self titled debut was released in 2005 it was a refreshing breath of air ...... Bet [the band's 2nd album, 2010] .... patently reflects a move further down the road to good old musical and artistic authenticity, with a generous helping of technical ability ".........
