Radio Effendi


Radio Effendi was born of intimate musical encounters, in a spirit of yearning and out of an endless quest for primal sound. The show offers unique interpretations of classical, ancient and modern music, both instrumental and vocal, from Turkey, Armenia and Persia, as well as original works that emerged out of the Israeli experience.

The show offers a compelling encounter between cultures, sounds and voices of the East, reflecting a distinctively Israeli sensibility.

Each member of the group brings his/her own set of timbres and sounds to the music, creating a new spirit that is true to its time and place while honoring memory and conveying a sense of rootedness in the past.
