Israeli born, Brooklyn-based jazz trumpeter and composer Itamar Borochov's search for his personal roots resulted in this new project: Borochov Dynasty.
Itamar's father Yisrael, is known for his work with the East-West Ensemble and the founding of East West House in Jaffa, Israel. Brother Avri Borochov is a classically trained double bass player, and has collaborated with a wide array of jazz musicians worldwide. Added to this talented family mix, is Ariel Alaev, of the Alaev Family musical group, drummer Aviv Cohen (aka Sol Monk) Persian Nay Master Amir Shahsar – and a whirlwind supply of ethnic instruments, including jumbush, zuma, and doira.
The Borochov Dynasty shares its family history of Bukharian Jewish sacred music, in this North American premiere.
