    Yemen Blues with Ravid Kahalani

    The Molly Blank Jewish Concert Series is back at the Breman! Yemen Blues’ original music mixes Yemen and West Africa influences with contemporary grooves from funk to mambo and the deep soul of old chants. Conjuring up a rich and diverse musical palette, Yemen Blues is both timeless and modern. Founded by Ravid Kahalani in 2010, a then rising star in Israel who grew up in a traditional Yemenite family, the collective is a true collaboration of top master musicians. Ravid learned the language and the traditional chants of his origin, and then extended his influences in the areas of Blues, Funk, Classic Opera as well as North and West African soul.
