Roni Eytan is one of the most interesting and virtuoso harmonica players in the world. Deeply rooted in jazz improvisation, he combines the music of the Middle East with the Andalusian sounds of North Africa – music that Eytan absorbed as a young musician in his hometown of Jerusalem. In 2018, Eytan became the first harmonica player ever to make it to the most prestigious Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz in New York and performed with a number of world-renowned musicians, including bassists John Patitucci and Eddie Gomez, drummer Brian Blade, pianist and singer Kevin Hays and pianist John Beasley. In 2014 he joined Grammy award winner Danilo Perez’s band and toured the world with him for two years.
At the HARMONICA FEN FESTIVAL Roni Eytan will be accompanied by Berlin-based double bass player Haggai Cohen Milo.
