ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Y a m m a Ensemble perform global Hebrew & Jewish music, traditional and original.
The music is played with ancient instruments (duduk, ney, kopuz, oud, shofar) and creates the feeling of nature, old times, strong sense of spiritual heritage & tradition although the materials are sometimes original and contemporary.

The sound, the performance, the selection of the materials and the moving arrangements took this music far beyond any expectation of the ensemble members. Without special plans, the ensemble became global and international, yet managed to remain authentic, local and loyal to the region in which it developed and was born.

With huge respect Yamma perform​s​ the forgotten and disappeared traditional materials and music of the​ ​​various​ Jewish ​
d​iasporas. sacred and secular songs of Sephardi, Hasidic, Babylonian, Yemenite, etc,

The magical Hebrew language is one of the main focus of the group. it receives a place of honor in all its layers and periods.
It’s the only living Canaanite language left and the only truly successful example of a revived dead language.
It survived 3000 years into the medieval period as the language of Jewish liturgy, rabbinic literature intra- Jewish commerce, and poetry. In the 19th century, it was revived as a spoken and literary language. It is alive and kicking even in the twenty-first century.
