Itamar Borochov

    Itamar Borochov brings a unique sound with him wherever he goes. Deeply immersed in the Jazz tradition, Borochovʼs search for his personal roots resulted in an ever-expanding love for Arab and Pan-African musical sensibilities – a natural palette for a trumpeter-composer raised in Jaffa, an integrated Muslim-Jewish-Christian city.

    Itamar fell in love with Jazz in his teens, and dedicated himself to its study, eventually moving to New York in 2006, to attend The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. There he studied with Junior Mance, Charles Tolliver, Jimmy Owens, Cecil Bridgewater, Jo Chambers, and quickly gained international recognition as a young innovator on todayʼs Jazz scene.

    Since then, Itamar has had the privilege to both perform and record with legendary artists such as Curtis Fuller, Candido Camero, Arnie Lawrence, Bobby Sanabria, Aaron Goldberg, Greg Tardy, and Omer Avital.

    While deeply immersed in the Jazz tradition, Borochovʼs search for his personal roots resulted in an ever-expanding love the musical traditions of the Arab world. Resulting in collaborations with the great Jewish-Moroccan liturgist Rabbi Haim Louk, the world music phenomenon Debka Fantasia, The New Jerusalem Orchestra, and Israeli rock singer Dudu Tassa. In 2009, his good friends and collaborators, Ravid Kahalani and Omer Avital, invited Itamar to become a core member of the world music sensation Yemen Blues and to help build itʼs unique sound.

    Itamar Has performed in prestigious venues and festivals around the globe, such as Lincoln Center (NY), The Kennedy Center, (Washington DC), Summer Stage at Central Park (NY), Roskilde Festival (Denmark), Ethnoport Festival (Poland), and more. He has performed at music showcases such as Babel Med (France), Womex (Denmark), and International Exposure (Israel).

    Nowadays, Itamar is quickly gaining international recognition as a young Jazz innovator. His music reflects on his rich global-landscape through the Jazz tradition. We canʼt wait to hear where he goes next.
