Ya Raiyat Limited Edition Yellow Vinyl
Recorded in Eyal’s backstreet studio in Tel Aviv filled with mics, speakers and a lot of junk much of which has been repurposed and turned into instruments of every persuasion.
Sung in Yemeni Arabic, it features a series of handmade instruments including the self-named ‘Kearat’, a large steel bowl with a piece of wood, some nails and screws and 6 strings sounding like a Banjo-Bass as well as a fuel plastic container and olive oil containers. There’s a Pancello as well, which is played with a bow like a cello made out of a saucepan, broken shelf and rope.
Khat is the natural plant chewed in Yemen and across the Arabic world.
