Maroc

by Deutsche Grammophon | June 30, 2017

Maroc is, as its name suggests, all about the rhythms and colour of Moroccan music, central to both Avi and Omer Avital's personal as well as musical heritage. Listen in to hear how.

Webisode #3

Ana Maghrebi

by Deutsche Grammophon | July 05, 2017

Ana Maghrebi means "I am from the Maghreb". Avi Avital comments on this 3rd track, whose title and musical idea is central to the whole concept of the album.

Both Avi and Omer Avital's families originally came from Marocco and they celebrate this aspect of their musical heritage in this track. But in tune with the concept of the whole album, they do this by mixing it with other cultural influences that, as musicians, they have soaked up over the years, as they travel around the world, learning new musical forms and meeting different musicians and artists.

In this particular track, Avi tells us, Omer, who composed the music, mixes in some caribbean rhythms!
