Panic Ensemble is a musical factory of eight excellent musicians, all great performers working in the core of the music industry.
For about two years Panic Ensemble is performing from underground clubs to classical music series at the Tel Aviv museum, the Israel festival and more.
Recently they released their first album - self titled. The critics, radio and TV love Panic Ensemble and their music is air played daily in radio stations throughout the country.

The music is like a fairytale, much like their cover design.
During the concert you enter a new world of magic. In contrary to bombastic – rhythmic orchestras of this size, you receive a listening, gentle and exquisite performance, with touch of classical, ethnic, cabaret and electronic music.

The texts talk about relationships, human fears, alienation and more.
Major part of the poetry is written by the internationally acclaimed poet Karen Alkalay Gut born in London, raised in New York and now residing in Israel teaching poetry at the Tel Aviv University.

Yael Kraus the lead singer bring her warm, soft voice, somewhat like an angel. Many songs are also accompanied by voices from the other members of the group.

Roy Yarkoni the composer, arranger and pianist of the ensemble has long experience composing for theatre and dance, which is recognizable in the much theatrical performance.

From the PRESS:
"Emotion is given as much, if not more weight than precise musicianship. And in doing so, they’ve made one of the best art-rock-cabaret records you haven’t heard this year."

"Panic Ensemble creates an intensely dramatic, cabaret-infused sound and appealing theatrical atmosphere...Full of poetic intensity and beauty."
