Diwan Ensemble

The music of Yemenite Jews is the inspiration that connects the four members of the ensemble.

The meeting point from which they embarked on the journey was followed by the ancient piyyutim (poetry) and hymns, which bear a mystical nature derived from the world of Kabbalah. The most prominent and influential poet of the period is Rabbi Shalom Shabazi. The ensemble managed to create a lyrical, ethnic and classical musical language in one, with clarity draping over the whole performance.

Oriental music in a classical approach with touches of world-music and jazz.

The DIWAN album was released in January 2017 and won acclaim in the media, and was chosen to be album of the week on GLZ radio.
