Black Velvet
ABOUT
 
Black Velvet is Israel's premier Irish/Celtic band. The band was founded by Ehud Nathan in 1980, with the intention of performing Irish music as authentically as possible, while keeping up with the evolving end of the tradition.

Band members' original compositions have been added to the repertoire over the years, along with music from other traditions: the Celtic music of Brittany (France) and Galicia (Spain), as well as music from the Balkans, Sweden, and the local Middle Eastern and Israeli music.

Black Velvet enjoyed success from its very beginning, and over the years has performed at all Israel's major venues.

The band's debut album was released in 2000 and won both public and critical acclaim.

The band released its second album in early 2013. It contains new pieces recorded in the studio, some of them original compositions and others that draw from diverse musical influences. An additional bonus CD features pieces recorded in concerts with well known guest musicians from Ireland.

The new line up of the band was founded in late 2012. It's a young and energetic line up that perfectly displays the richness and complexity of Black Velvet's music.

Band members:

Mai Choma – fiddle

Philip Khripkov – flute, whistles

Eti Abramovitz – flute, melodica, percussion, vocals

Ehud Nathan - bouzouki, mandolin

Yaron Eigenstein – keyboards, melodica, vocals

Nadav Rogel – bodhrán, percussion
