Canaanite Groove

Under the blazing sun, the hot sand invites your feet to dance to imaginative, original tunes, recreating the music which may have emerged from the Land of Canaan many years ago.


Canaanite groove burst onto Israel’s music scene at the World Jazz Festival in Tel Aviv, in 2006. With an enchanting blend of African, Yemenite, Ladino, Balkan and Middle Eastern sounds - coupled with sophisticated and talented musicians, Canaanite Groove offers a complete experience.


The song "Hashayara" was featured on an episode of NCIS: Los Angeles.
