This week on The Times of Israel Podcast we’re speaking with two members of the world music band Yamma, singer Talya G.A. Solan and winds player Yonnie Dror. Other band members include Aviv Bahar, Nur Bar Goren and Avri Borochov.
The band incorporates Jewish music traditions from across the Mediterranean and Africa, and draws on the musicians’ musical and ethnic backgrounds.
Their runaway hit is strangely enough a setting of Psalm 104. The Youtube video alone has gotten almost 6 million views.
If you enjoy their music and this talk, check out more of their songs on YouTube and at their website YammaEnsemble.com
