Layering Yemeni tradition with rock and blues sounds, charismatic Israeli singer Ravid Kahalani gathered musicians from New York, Tel Aviv and Uruguay to create Yemen Blues in 2010. An incredibly powerful project, which merges Latin and African music with jazz and funk while incorporating evocative and deep Arabic singing. After an eponymous debut in 2011, produced by brilliant bassist Omer Avital, Yemen Blues reaches new heights with «INSANIYA» - or "humanity" - which it has performed throughout Europe, the United States or even China, with more than 400 concerts and counting. We even hear the rapper Oxmo Puccino in a memorable featuring on the record.
