Two amazing musicians, classically trained mandolin player Avi Avital and jazz bassist Omer Avital, have combined their talents in a new release “Avital Meets Avital.” While sharing the same last name, the two are not related, but share their culure. Both musicians have parents of Moroccan descent who immigrated to Israel in the 1960s and this shared heritage, along with their divergent musical paths is the story of Avital Meets Avital.
I had the pleasure of talking with Avi Avital about his classical background, playing the violin and the creation of this new album. Enjoy our chat!
Yours in good music,
