Tickets and more information

Reunited members of Israel’s internationally acclaimed Arab/Jewish ensemble, Bustan, draws equally on Western and Middle Eastern classical traditions and jazz improvisation to create a stunningly original world of sound.

Taiseer Elias is regularly cited as one of the foremost oud players in the Middle East, Zohar Fresco is a leading hand percussionist on the world stage, and their virtuosity is matched by their partners Amir Milstein (flute) and Emmanuel Mann (electric bass). The quartet consists of core members of Bustan Abraham, the band that through mastery and innovative synthesis of music from the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas revolutionized the world music scene in Israel in the early 90s and brought a fresh voice from Israel to the world stage as it toured abroad annually from 1993 to 2003.
