Avital meets Avital

Gunter Theatre

Avi Avital was the first mandolin soloist to be nominated for a classical Grammy® Award. Omer Avital has been named “one of the most exciting musicians to come onto the jazz scene in the last 20 years” (DownBeat). Together, their music uncovers their shared past in a creative blend of Moroccan beats, Israeli harmonies, classical sensibility, and jazz improvisation. It’s also a meeting of two musical backgrounds: the classically-trained Avi “meets” the jazz-trained Omer; tradition meets modernism; East meets West. The result is a “foot-stomping, hip-swaying jazz and Middle Eastern fusion” (Gramophone) that tells a story of self-discovery that is as intimately personal as it is universal.
