The Seventh Belgrade


Location: Garden Courtyard of the Belgrade Synagogue

June 18th - 19th 2016.

As in previous years the festival is taking place in the beautiful garden courtyard of the Belgrade Synagogue right in the heart of the city center. Musicians of various nationalities, cultures and backgrounds who are all equally devoted, passionate and particularly true to the authenticity of their art will be participating. They recognize each other's particular talents and styles while at the same time making precious contacts and exchanging experiences. This all contributes towards creating an atmosphere of tolerance and love.

We, the creators of this festival, are sure that we are on the right path and are proud of the success of this event as well as of the audience that we gathered since we began the festival.

Yemen and Africa are separated by sea. Gulaza is an expression of that sea - a sea of despair, prayer, passion, dance, love and longing for freedom.

Four artists come together and continue the natural evolution of the Yemenite Women songs.

Old mystical texts acquire a modern and contemporary meaning in a special vocal and instrumental arrangements. This concept was born when Igal Mizrahi and Ben Aylon joined to create a duet between an ancient Yemenite song and the sound of the African N’goni.
