The project Yagel Ya’akov – Original Root World Music to texts from the Origins.

Seven musicians from the Galilee go through a spectacular 200-year musical journey

In the heart of the Western Galilee, between the Kziv River and Nahal Ga’aton River lies a unique, multicultural city that encourages pluralism and common life. Between the landscapes of the country and the diverse human landscape, the members of the Ensemble, led by the Artistic Director, Musician and Creator Igal Ohayon, create an Original Root World Music, one that brings the whole world to visit the Galilee but is associated with the thickness of love for roots and texts from the origins.

Members of the Band embark on a time-travel, 200 years back to the book of Rabbi Ya’akov Abuchatzira and his sons, called: “Yagel Ya’akov”.

The performance “Yagel Yaakov” connects Ohayon’s original music compositions to the ensemble’s inner world and presents a rootsy musical performance that breaks the boundaries between the various musical content worlds and connects them in a way that was never heard before.

The Ensemble includes seven Galilee musicians who bring to the stage professional skill, life experience, deep mental worlds and the Galilean spirit.
