LEVANTASY international ensemble connecting the art music of the Middle-East with the land of Jazz. A unique musical concept - not only thanks to the intriguing mix between Jewish, Arab and Persian influences with Western jazz but also because musical instruments such as oboe, zurna (Turkish oboe), shofar (Jewish horn) and Tombak (Iranian drum) are seldom heard in jazz. The ensemble was established in 2008 and released its debut album in February 2011. It has completed several successful concert tours in the Netherlands, enthusiastically acclaimed by the audience and the press, also performing at the prestigious 2010 Hague Jazz Festival and the well-known Bimhuis club in Amsterdam. Dutch National TV show, Vrije Geluiden, featured Levantasy in a special edition of "The Best of 10 Years Jazz".
