YAMMA ensemble

(Eclectic Jewish Music, Tel-Aviv) Beyond the usual repertoires of Jewish music (Sefarade, Klezmer, Yemenite, etc ...) Yamma Ensemble puts in the foreground an original music that draws on the materials of ancient traditions .

Yamma Ensemble presents original contemporary Hebrew music in which group members stay true to the character of the Middle East, the region where they were born and raised. The soulful, exotic music is accompanied by ancient musical instruments (kopuz, duduk, hand drums), which are typical of the Middle East.

In addition to this unique art, Yamma also performs the traditional music and material of the various Jewish diasporas. We present songs of the Jewish communities from Yemen, Babylon, and Sefarad, as well as Hasidic music, with the fascinating forms and rhythms that have been preserved by generations of Jewish traditions.
