The show was amazing not at all what I expected. Thank you so much for the deal. I had never been to The Triple Door before and with this amazing deal I was able to experience a new band and new venue which I will definately attend again.

Description

Yemen Blues is an original and fascinating meeting of traditional Yemenite melodies & the world of blues, jazz and funk. The flavours of West African roots and enhanced modern compositions are bringing together a breathtaking experience and a mixture of beautiful complex grooves. It is the powerful outcome of Ravid Kahalani’s musical journey from his Yemenite roots to western influences – a joyful oasis in the middle of the desert.

Yemen Blues was founded by Ravid Kahalani, a rising star in Israel who grew up to a traditional Yemenite family, learned the language and the traditional chants of his origin, and extended his influences in the areas of blues and West African soul, from the Sahara desert thru classical Opera singing to Afro American blues.
