Daphna Sadeh: Born in Parallel

Read "Born in Parallel" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Bassist/composer Daphna Sadeh may have left her native Israel over a decade ago but the country's colorful musical potpourri is firmly embedded in her DNA. For Sadeh, the confluence of Arabic, Eastern European and Mediterranean influences that resound throughout Israeli culture have provided the building blocks for her longstanding, UK-based ensemble The Voyagers on albums like Reconciliation (Tzadik, 2009).

Daphna Sadeh & The Voyagers: Reconcilation

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
