It's to her credit that Israeli-born composer and double bassist Daphna Sadeh has embraced the vibrant multi-culturalism of the great melting pot of Israel to be the defining character of her music. Her openness to all cultures and a brighter future shines through the beautiful music she creates with The Voyagers.

Now based in the UK, this most original of bass players has led The Voyagers since 2003 and is now touring to promote the release of Reconciliation (2009), the group's third release and first for John Zorn's Tzadik label. It is a fascinating musical blend of all the cultures that have helped shape the modern Israeli identity. The title of the album, as Sadeh explains, stems from her belief in the power of music.

AAJ contributor Ian Patterson spoke with Sadeh about her musical background, and finding new ways to blend the music of her culture with that of modern jazz.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
