Multi-instrumentalist Charlie Sabach was born in Beer Sheva and began performing on a wide range of instruments from an early age, among them oud, guitar, mandolin and ney flute. In the course of a colorful and impressive career, Sabach recorded and performed worldwide with some of the major artists in Israel: Shem Tov Levi ensemble, David D’or, Arkadi Duchin and others. In addition, Sabach is a prolific composer who has written music for films and several of Israel’s major theaters, as well as ensembles and projects under his own name. The Sabach’s, a band Charlie founded and led, centered around his original pieces and performed by a six-piece ensemble including Charlie’s two sons on guitars. His album Makams - Places created in collaboration with pianist Kobi Arad was nominated for a grammy award in 2022.

Hillel Amsallem pursued the artistry of percussion playing in musical genres originating from West to far East. His teachers included Nino Bitton, renowned master of Classical Algerian music, as well as Cuban percussionist Duniesky "El Cuba" Barreto Pozo, specializing in Afro-Latin music. Between the years of 2016- 2021 Amsallem was a leading percussionist at the Israeli Andalusian Orchestra, and was concurrently co-founder of several musical ensembles who made it their goal to preserve classical North African music and teach it throughout Israel: the Maghreb Orchestra under the leadership of singer and oud player Nino Bitton, Dialna founded by violinist Elad Levi, and Tarab Jerusalem Orchestra, led by Elad Levi and Paytan Hay Korkos. Amsallem is a permanent member of pianist Maurice el Medioni’s ensemble and with the band of renowned singer Amir Benayoun. Amsallem teaches at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and works with professional musicians as well as special needs groups.

“...Versed in the music of North Africa, with her Western classical music and jazzy leanings hanging about on the periphery, Mosenzon is showing the Andalusian world that she is the genuine article”
