With its unusual collection of instruments – Iranian kamancheh, accordion and Middle-Eastern percussion, along with passionate singing – the group creates a fresh sound collage. The various musical backgrounds and influences of the group members join together to create an exquisite east-west sound with Jewish Ladino songs, early Israeli pieces, Iranian folk music, and more. With pulsating rhythms, hypnotic grooves and virtuosity – Kedem Ensemble conjures up a wide spectrum of emotions.
