Jazz at JAKI: Or Bareket
The music of Israeli bassist and composer Or Bareket is true world music: he was born in Jerusalem to parents with Moroccan, Iraqi, Argentinian and Eastern European roots, commuted between Buenos Aires and Tel Aviv in his youth, and has lived in the multicultural metropolis of New York since 2011, where his skills as a bassist immediately attracted attention. In the same year he won the 'International Society of Bassist's Jazz Competition'. Apart from his dexterity, the jury liked his voluminous sound, his lyricism and his distinct instinct for grooves. In his music, Or Bareket incorporates influences from the Middle East, the Maghreb and Latin American folklore, blending them into vibrant, refreshing jazz. When he now comes to Munich, he will present the music of his third album 'Sahar', which will be released in spring.
