Sandman Project, led by guitarist Tal Sandman, bring an exciting musical project from the heart of the Arabic district of Tel Aviv, Jaffa. With a name drawn from her deep connection to the earth’s elements, the group’s sound is purely instrumental and at times evokes the early pioneering spirits of Ethiopian jazz with swirling trumpets climbing up and down a moody Tezeta Ethiopian scale.
The four members of the Sandman Project together and individually have taken part in various projects in the Israeli music scene as well as collaborating with international artists. In this project they join forces aiming to explore new sounds with each member contributing their own unique musical expression.
