Uniting traditional Yemenite melodies with the world of blues, jazz, and funk, Yemen Blues combines West African roots and enhanced modern compositions in a breathtaking mixture of beautiful, complex grooves.
"Yemen Blues hopscotched across cultures, often in mid-song. It could sound like an Arabic pop orchestra accompanying serpentine melodies, or a North African trance group, only to switch toward jazzy horn and flute solos or hints of chamber music." - The New York Times
