“They're certainly jazz and of this era, they're full of energy and have a multitude of things to say... they're seriously craftsmen of songs, pulling from so many parts in their own instruments...”
- Anthony Dean-Harris, 'NEXTBOP’, USA

“With courageous, witty playing and a rough sound… KADAWA’s music transforms a proverb into a real aural experience.”
- Von Rainer Schmidt, 'Neue Westfälisch', Germany

"What a blessing it is when a band is contemplating their expression. This was proven by American trio Kadawa with their sometimes agile, sometimes gently delighting electro-guitar-jazz.”
- Ane Hebeisen, 'Der Bund', Switzerland

After an extensive tour spanning Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, USA and their home country of Israel, collective trio KADAWA presents a vast repertoire of original compositions on their debut album, performed with the group’s distinct explosive energy, adventurous interplay and imaginative sonic vocabulary.

Guitarist Tal Yahalom, double bassist Almog Sharvit and drummer Ben Silashi draw inspiration from jazz, rock, cinema and literature to create song-like instrumental compositions, driven by mood, story and improvisation. KADAWA teamed up with a creative group of collaborators in trumpeter Adam O’Farrill, trombonist Matt Bumgardner and keyboardist Micha Gilad to produce a dynamic, broad ranged 12 track recording that doesn’t quite yield itself to simple categorization or a sole musical genre.

The album kicks off in an unusual manner with a harmonically rich, cinematic choral entitled ‘When Old Age Comes.’ Immediately followed by ‘Aviators Tale,’ a high energy thriller featuring odd-metered and unorthodox grooves, the album launches into a variety of musical territories as ‘Yoreh’ features strong, lyrical melodies and articulate rhythmic interactions. Through the intimately haunting ‘Bed Time Story,’ the humorous free-for-all of ‘Shades Of A Happy Ending’ and the strikingly rich soundscapes of ‘Blizzard,’ KADAWA’s debut album provides an exciting ride through the different dimensions of the band’s musical spectrum.
