Give ear , O ye heavens , to this electric desert storm from the middle east where the old meets the bold , where tradition meets with fiction , where east & west fuse with some blasting semitic groove.
Can you imagine how Oum Kulthum the famous Arabic Diva would sound when tripping on acid ?
And how about 200 hundred Yemenite rabbies beating their heads in a 180 BPM Drill & Bass frenzy ?
You can of course continue to use your imagination.We definitely encourage that.
On the other hand you can just give an ear to AvRaHim’s hottest debut album : ‘Give Ear’
AvRaHim is a fusion of different cultures , different languages , different beliefs & of course different kinds of music.
The name AvRaHim which is a fusion of the Hebrew name ‘Avraham’ & the Arabic name ‘Ibrahim’ refers to our common ancestor who demonstrates the common aspects of our languages, culture & beliefs.
The music of avrahim is a unique blend of electrifying beats & grooves with traditional middle eastern music. From 180 bpm Yemenite drill & bass to Bedouin funk then to some ecstatic desert-tribal grooves & finally relaxing & tripping with some smooth oriental trip-hop ambiance. Dance to it , listen to it , trip with it , Give Ear to it !
AvRaHim members Uri Pessach & Abed El Salaam Abu-Foul come from Jaffa , a natural Hebrew-Arab mixed city in Israel.They began jamming together more then 4 years ago.It all began when Uri Pessach was looking for that perfect Arabic sound that will give his electronic track the middle eastern feel he heard in his mind.
“ A good friend of ours told me that Abed is really into it & suggested that we try to jam together” recalls Pessach.” Although Abed had no musical background his beautiful & delicate voice really touched me”. This 1st musical jam gave birth to AvRaHim’s dance version to the well known Farid El Atrache song ‘Ya Habaybi Ya Raybin’ ( My Absent Beloved ).Naturally another jam was set & another gem was born. Oum Kulthum’s ‘We Marret Al Ayam’ ( And the days have gone by ) came to life.Then followed the Yemenite traditional ‘Sar Ha Memune’ which became a 180 BPM drum & bass frenzy & many other blends & mixes began to emerge. ‘AvRaHim’ came to existence.” We never know what direction the original melodies will take us” says Pessach.”We’re always looking for that new creation that will come out of this traditional elements”.
Avrahim is delighted to share with you its debut musical creation & hope you’ll
enjoy your trip.Now it’s time to give ear & let the music speak !
Peace , Shalom , Salaam ,
“Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.”
