„Omer Avital – Qantar“ Live At Bimhuis 22.04.2018

Captivating blend of jazz and eastern music by New York-based Israeli double bassist. ‘One of the most exciting musicians to come onto the jazz scene in the last 20 years’ (Downbeat). Qantar is the new name of the quintet of composer and double bassist Omer Avital. He’s known to lead his bands with such fervor that Downbeat has already compared him to his legendary colleague Charles Mingus.

In his music Omer Avital refers to his half Jewish and half Arabic heritage. The result is an urban mixture of cultural influences, from eastern melodies to intoxicating North African desert blues.
