Yamma Ensemble, composed of five members: Talya G. A. Solan, Yonnie Dror, Aviv Bahar, Nur Bar Goren, and Avri Borochov, is dedicated to creating and performing the Hebrew music of modern day. With music full of souls and exotic flavors, Yamma Ensemble brings forth the charming styles and rhythms of Hebrew music that has passed on from generations to generations. Yamma Ensemble, founded by Talya G. A. Solan, presents original and modern Hebrew music with oriental and western instruments to combine Middle Eastern influence with contemporary western flavors, thus creating a modern twist. Meanwhile, it also explores the area of impromptu creation with free rhythms.
