THE ALAEV FAMILY (IL/TJ)

Thursday 05.07.12 - 21:30 - Gloria

With foothold in the percussive traditions of Central Asia, several generations of The Alaev Family perform together. The age span is, according to themselves, 15 to 79.

In 1991 the entire Alaev family immigrated from Tajikistan to Israel. You will notice this in the multi-ethnical music, which employs accordions, angry violins and Turkish-sounding scales on the clarinet. The music grooves with more exhilaration than a wedding where half of Tel Aviv is invited.

With The Alaev Family you will get a cheerful demonstration of how ancient family traditions can withstand the tooth of time and be carried forward proudly by younger generations. This is further evidence to the fact that Israel has become the centre of several exciting genre clashes.
