Théâtre de l'Orangerie - El Khat


Yemenite rock

Yemeni folk music from the 50s to 70s heard from Sanaa to Taizz to life. A mix between the traditional tribal singing with modern arrangements are sung in Arabic and Hebrew and echoed over handmade instruments such as strained and amplified pans, a bass made from a bicycle, electric and fervent performances.

The general concept of El Khat's show falls within Eyal's sense of identity, or the lack of it, as a Yemeni Jew living in Tel Aviv. The live performance is the reward of a self-imposed mission to discover his Yemeni roots. It incorporates many free and improvised elements, making each performance unique.

El Khat is a group of four musicians from Tel Aviv, all from different backgrounds: Iraq, Poland, Morocco and Yemen.
