Omer Avital’s music is extraordinary — boisterous and sublime at the same time. A bassist and composer known widely as “a pioneer in combining jazz with myriad world music elements” (LA Times), Omer — a Bed-Stuy resident — has been praised as “roaringly inventive” (Jazziz). Lately he has turned his traditional jazz sensibility to the performance of Middle Eastern and North African music.
