December, 6th 2023 - 6.30 pmEL KHATA retro-futuristic mix of traditional Yemeni songs, contemporary grooves, and self-made instruments.
El Khat – a homemade found-sounds band led by multi-instrumentalist Eyal El Wahab performing original compositions inspired by the music of the Golden Age in Aden, Yemen. El Wahab plays many instruments and some he constructed himself. Using his skills to make music from the items people discard. A child of the Yemeni diaspora who’s grown up in Tel Aviv Jaffa, Israel, it’s a practice that harks back to the family homeland, where even rubbish can become an instrument.As undulating and stimulating as the eponymous plant, El Khat mixes trash and tradition in a timely urban reclamation of a disenfranchised culture.
