Biography

“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.

Description:
"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.
