The Return of Yemen Blues

February 28, 2015 $20.00 - $25.00

The passionate and magnetic Yemeni-born Israeli singer Ravid Kahalani (‘the Yemenite Mick Jagger’) leads a roaring group that merges West African rhythms and ancient Jewish Yemeni melodies, mambo and funk. The group has been making huge waves of late, appearing in Paste magazine’s list of 10 International Acts to Watch and performing a captivating, star-making set at globalFEST, the most prestigious world music festival in America. With members hailing from Israel, Finland, Uruguay and the U.S., Yemen Blues captures myriad global influences, blending them into a highly danceable, soulful and raucous stew.
