Avi Avital, Mandolin & Omer Avital, Bass

Tuesday, April 16, 2019, 7:30 PM Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall


Avital Meets Avital

What do you get when you mix up Moroccan, North African, Israeli, and Mediterranean musical traditions and filter them through a blend of jazz and classical idioms? We probably would never have known if not for the musical union of mandolinist Avi Avital and bassist Omer Avital (no relation). Fortunately for us, these two virtuosos have joined forces to explore the crossroads of classical technique and jazz improvisation, in a conversation that grows from a shared cultural experience and travels across genres and decades to arrive in a place of mutual self-discovery.

The concert will include pieces composed Omer Avital, including Zamzama, Lonely Girl, and Ballad for Eli and composed by Avi Avital, such as Avi's Song and Prelude.
