WMI presents Yemen Blues, a contemporary quartet led by vocalist Ravid Kahalani. The band blends their Yemenite and West African musical influences with funk grooves and mambo rhythms, conjuring up a rich and diverse aural palette. The instrumentation is composed of percussion, oud, horns, and strings.

Yemen Blues’ myriad influences carry over on stage, where the ensemble navigates from the boisterous to the romantic, from joyous celebration to anguished balladry. Horns fire off bombastically, percussion adds deep rhythmic textures, while oud strums out subtle melodies.

The LET’S DANCE series brings us all together on the dance floor moving our bodies to the infectious beats of DJs and live bands from around the world.
