Event Description

Shesh Besh is a model of mutual respect in a turbulent, violent Middle East seeking an elusive balance of East and West through music while embodying two cultures living together in harmony. Shesh Besh is comprised of two members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra alongside three of the finest musicians from Israel’s Arab community. Instrumentation will include violin, oud, flute, double bass, and percussion (deff and darbuka). Musically, the ensemble reflects a multicultural context of classical Western music, classical Eastern works, and original compositions.
