      Fresh, lively Israeli album

      I'm not sure why but European folk music unless it's distinctly roma or klezmer seems to bore me a bit at the moment, the last offering from Orange World had a more exotic flavour. With a name like Ben Canar, I had little doubt where the Israeli band came from but I still wasn't sure about the type of music, ethnic music of some kind was to be expected as that's what Orange World specialise in but the album cover kind of gave off electronic vibes.

      This album is ethnic through and through and it has a very Middle Eastern flavour to it, you could easily be walking through the markets of Jerusalem when you hear this. Incidentally it's exactly the kind of music which gets ignored in Israel these days, when I visited a year ago locals were baffled as to the popularity of klezmer and sephardic music in Europe and the US, in particular the young generation.

      There's a wide range of wind instruments and drums throughout this album, the Siberian born artist Ben Canar plays a major part in the band, playing guitars and drums whilst a wide-range of predominantly Russian speaking Jews are called in for the other instruments. I don't know enough about this band to be completely sure but by listening to the album it seems as though it may be put together during recording rather than the kind of music that gets played live, it just seems a bit impossible that Ben Canar would be able to do several things at once. Either way, the outcome is extremely enjoyable music with a very Middle Eastern flavour.
