Avi and Omer Avital

The coincidentally shared surname only scratches the surface of the deep affinity between these two accomplished musicians, both born in Israel yet representing different (though highly complementary) musical paths: the classically trained, stylistically omnivorous mandolin wizard Avi Avital, praised by the New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility”; and the virtuoso bassist and oud player Omer Avital, “one of the most exciting musicians to come onto the jazz scene in the last 20 years” (DownBeat). In Avital Meets Avital, they co-lead a blazing quartet that unites jazz with influences from Israel, Morocco, and beyond.
