Yemen Blues

Yemen Blues has created a sound that swirls with the Yemenite tradition of Muslims, Christians and Jews, with contemporary overlays of rock & roll, jazz & blues. The charismatic singer Ravid Kahalani has gathered high class musicians around him and the ensemble plays inspiring live music that touches every audience. One of the most unique percussion set ups and an extreme, versatile rhythm section are the pulsating, danceable underpinning of this unique musical collaboration.

Yemen Blues seems to have an unusual appeal, because although their last album was some years ago, they have found a large audience at over 300 concerts in recent years.

„Ein kreatives Feuerwerk, gespeist aus Pop und Soul, westafrikanischen und afrokubanischen Rhythmen, Klassik, Jazz und Funk sowie jemenitischen Gesängen. [...] Jeder Musiker ist für sich ein Ausnahmeartist, im Kollektiv entsteht ein völlig neuer Sound, nicht zuletzt durch die unglaubliche Energie, mit der alle bei der Sache sind. Kein Wunder, dass die Band weltweit gefeiert wird[...]"
Berliner Morgenpost
„Quite simply, it’s one of the most exciting bands in world music right now."
Time Out Chicago
"Pure Lebensfreude an den Stanser Musiktagen: Der Auftritt von Yemen Blues [...] Das Konzert, oder um präziser zu sein die Performance von Yemen Blues wirkte von Anfang an hochprofessionell und beinahe perfekt durchdacht. [...] Durchströmt mit Lebensenergie tauchen wir in eine wunderbare Stanser Nacht ab."
Frachtwerk Kulturmagazin, 05.08.2019
"Yemen Blues is one of the best live acts you will see, largely due to the front man’s lust for life."
