At the crossroads of blues, funk and rock, the music of Yemen Blues is tinged with different influences from the Middle East. Proving once again the timelessness of ancestral grooves, the group, led by the very charismatic singer Ravid Kalahani, winds between black-American music and the vibrations of the Saharan desert, Nubians, Gnawi, Tuaregs, Saidi and Bambara.
A formidable melting pot open to all horizons, Yemen Blues raises cultures above the walls. With its own references, Yemeni singing explodes through an overdone and euphoric soul.
