The cool, rhythmic wonder who goes by the name Yogev Shetrit — the man and the drums — comes to us straight from a tour of jazz festivals in India and Guatemala as well as the Kazakhstan Astana Expo 2017 in, where he appeared with his new trio: Shetrit (drums, music, and production), Stav Goldberg (piano), and Menachem Welt (bass).
Shetrit is no stranger to world traveling. He is the founder of the hip-hop group Coolooloosh, which performed in some of the world’s most important clubs and festivals. He founded the new trio in order to showcase his original, personal compositions.
“New Path,” Shetrit’s first solo album, fuse the Andalusian, Moroccan, Jewish, and Israeli musical traditions of his childhood in Be’er Sheva with contemporary jazz and punk. A refreshing, unexpected combination not to be missed.
