Blind Orchestra at Beit HaYotzer (Hangar 22 Port of Tel Aviv)! Fantastic music, action, suspense, and the kind of party you wish would never end – Blind Orchestra is all that and more (read the full review here ). Emerging from the perpetually creative brain of Dov ‘Balu’ Rosen (founding member of The Angelcy & Lo Dubim), the concept is very intriguing: in each performance a different ensemble of musicians performs blindfolded, in sets of improvised music, conducted by touch, with a different conductor for each set. This sessions improv gang: Marianne Tur – Violin, Dor Levin – Drums, Synths, Dvir Golan – Saxophones, Nitai Marcos – Bass, Eyal Tafesh – guitar, Freshon Ski – Vocals & Beatbox; ,Adi Gershon – Vocals; Dov Balu – Drums. Doors open at 21:30, show starts at 22:00. Tickets are 40 NIS and may be ordered via this link.

Performing: Ilan Smilan – guitar; Amir Sadot – bass; Roei Hermon – keys; Itamar Katzir – African drums; Oded Aloni – cajon & percussion. Doors open at 19:00, show at around 20:30, admission free.
