How come three of the four Israeli winners of the Eurovision are of Yemenite descent? And why are they so well represented in Hebrew music? Yemenite singers such as Ofra Haza, Achinoam Nini, Shoshana Damari, Gali Atari and Izhar Cohen are known for their golden voices. Discover their music with this tribute of Hebrew Groove choir: Tracing the Yemenite Hebrew Groove. They take you on a journey through infectious rhythms and smooth Maqamat (Arabic scales), to form a fusion of the Maghreb and the Jewish language Hebrew, that feels so well connected together.
Hebrew Groove is a young, contemporary, Hebrew vocal group based in Amsterdam. The repertoire consists of Hebrew pop songs from all times, retouched with the groovy piano and close harmony vocal arrangements of artistic director Noam Vazana. Hebrew Groove has performed (among others) at Amsterdam MuseumNacht, Paradiso Choir Festival, Salaam-Shalom, Namen en Nummers, Koor en More Festival, the preliminary EU elections conference.
