Eatliz and Consider the Source have decided to take the next step in their relationship – after a successful tour in the US this past spring, Consider the Source will join Eatliz in Israel this month!
The two bands met when Consider the Source was on tour in Turkey, Greece and Israel last year. They heard Eatliz and suggested touring together in Israel but couldn’t get their schedules to mesh and the plan was transported to the US where the two bands toured the West Coast together.
Consider the Source is a New York based trio playing Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk with Middle Eastern scales, psychedelic jams and a hard-rocking rhythm section. The band members – Gabriel Marin on fret-less double neck guitar and effects, John Ferrera on bass, and Justin Ahiyon on drums and percussion, cite their influences as including The Bad Plus, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson and Tool. Another source of inspiration was a trip to India where they studied the tala (rhythm) of North India and the micro-tonal scale structure and melodic ornamentations of South India. Consider the Source live up to their reputation as one of the leading Jam Bands, performing 365 times a year.
