Sinai Memories (The East-West Ensemble)

The East-west ensemble is a truly unique being, consisting of a coalition of Arab and Israeli musicians, something that until recently would be considered impossible.
The ensemble's quest is the search for a balanced mixture between Eastern and Western musical traditions. This search is held in a sophisticated and original manner.
The members of the band were educated on quite different and sometimes contradicting musical grounds, naming briefly jazz and classical music alongside classical Arab and far-Eastern music. The ensemble has made this first recording back on 1988 and is regularly performing and recording ever since.
