OSOG will be performing at Drama (Nahalat Binyamin 52) with songs from the upcoming new album! OSOG stands for “on the shoulders of giants,” honoring their musical roots, and on the way to their unique sound, they have done some deep listening. You may be tempted to think: Americana, and that would be true, because their life-water comes from the same well. But the creature nurtured on it, was born on the crossroads, in the Middle East, with the world in its ears. The nine-person band features acoustic instruments, yet they are played with a 21st century sensibility. A song may open with poetic imagery and fingers pick out a delicate melody on the ukulele or mandolin, like a folk tune coming from an old soul, then something happens, a portal opens to the dark side, and everything changes. But in that intensity, you realize that it was always all there, paradise and the inferno are all part of the same whole. There’s a religious fervor to many of the songs, that resonates profoundly. It sounds like traditional Gospel and Blues, not because it is written in that manner or in imitation; if you listen to the music you soon realize that it is a raging devil-child of diverse influences (blues, folk, rock, punk, reggae – to name a few) and striking originality. OSOG’s music feels like traditional blues or gospel because they are harnessed to the same, ultimately subversive task: truth-telling.Onstage: Avital Tamir – vocals, mandolin; Idan Epstein – ukulele, vocals; Erez Shmida – acoustic guitar, vocals; Assaf Perelmuter – lap steel, vocals; Ofir Ventura – harmonica, vocals; David Benjamini – acoustic bass, vocals; Elad Nadav – drums, vocals; Guy Fleischer – percussion.Doors open at 21:00, admission free.
