Singer and Composer Tami Machnai's performances invoke a powerful fusion between Western and Middle-Eastern music. She specializes in contemporary interpretations and traditional performances of Middle Eastern Israeli and Jewish folk music. She sings in Hebrew, Ladino (the Jewish dialect of Spanish) and English. Her flexible ensemble includes classical guitar, upright acoustic bass, clarinet/flute, violin, cello, piano and hand percussion.

Recent credits include performing at the Fleet Center, Boston at the opening ceremony of the International JCC Maccabi Games, for an audience of twelve thousand, and performing with the L.A. Philharmonic at the new Disney Hall, in a production of Osvaldo Golijov's opera Ainadamar. In her native Israel, she has performed several times on Israeli national television and has performed in Tel Aviv at the Jazz O'mania Music Festival and the Suzanne Dalal Dance Festival. She has recorded a SONY Television commercial as soloist of the Arnon Palti Jazz Quartet, in collaboration with the Nimrod Frid Dance Ensemble, and has recorded with Boston Reggae singer/songwriter Casper John on three of his albums. She has also performed in Japan, Venezuela, and Switzerland.
