Israel today is a center of cultural encounter. Bamidbar tries to serve as a musical bridge in this encounter. Arabic & African rhythms are mixed with Hasidic, Indian & Celtic melodies. All these combined with a strong commitment to Classical and Jazz music creates a very unique musical stew.


“Bamidbar” - Israeli World Music Ensemble
(Won 2 first prizes at the European Champioship of Folk 2010)
The concert is recognized and supported by the Foreign Ministry of Israel.

"Bamidbar" means ‘In The Desert’ in Hebrew. It is also the name of the fourth book of the Torah , which describes the searching for the Land of Israel in the desert.
As the name suggests, the music of “Bamidbar” is a path of a musical search for the land of Israel. Israel today is a state of many immigrants (East European, Indian, African) mixed with locals and therefore is a center of cultural encounters. This meshing, together with a strong commitment to western classical, jazz and local music creates a unique musical stew.

The project is mainly instrumental, but contains a couple of songs in Hebrew. The compositions are all original and so are the texts involved.

“Bamidbar” exists for 4 years, and have performed in many venues in Israel.
