We are glad and exited to take a part in the next wonderful Rumi Festival, that will take
place in Victoria national jazz scene in Oslo Centrum.

In these crazy times we feel that this is our duty and heat mission to
increase the heart frequency. Al we can do is play and invite you to join, close your eyes with us, listen.

“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen.”

“I am neither of the East nor of the West, no boundaries exist within my breast.”

– Rumi

FARAN in the new U2 video !!!

U2-12-932x466

We have a great story to tell.
About a year ago, we got a strange email saying that “an American group is looking for bands to participate in a new video,” without any further details such as name of the band, pictures, links to their music, nothing. so we thought to ourselves, it must be spam mail, and ignored it.
A couple of weeks later, we received another email, with those words written in the subject:
TIME SENSITIVE – CASTING FOR U2 Music Video !!!!
“You guys were chosen to perform with a Grammy award winning band. Filming is next week, please reply!”

Wow. Gad was on a camel journey in the desert, and had no cellular reception; Roy was about to return to Israel from India; and Refael was somewhere up north. We contacted the production on the eleventh hour. We had to learn the song very quickly, in less than one day, and so, on very short notice, we gathered at Shaharut and played to directions of Gabo Arora before Ian Doss’s camera. The video released in october 2015.
