AVITAL meets AVITAL - A genre defying dialogue
Avi Avital - mandolin
Omer Avital - double bass, oud
Yonathan Avishai - piano
Itamar Doari - percussion

Avital meets Avital is a dialogue between two musicians who come from different worlds but share a common richness of musical heritage.
Grammy nominee mandolinist Avi Avital comes from a classical tradition whilst award-winning bass virtuoso and oud player Omer Avital is an acclaimed jazz performer and composer. In Avital meets Avital these two musicians draw in the diverse influences of Moroccan and North African sounds, flokloric and classical traditions, Israeli harmonis and Mediterranean rhythms creating a muscial melting pot where the finesse of chamber meets the raw emotional energy of jazz.
