Specializing in oriental music with a modern touch, Istiklal Trio comes from a unique place within the Israeli music scene. With a Fusion and New-Age music background, the Trio’s repertoire is based on ethnic pieces with up-to-date reproductions.
The group combines familiar heritage with modern world music influences, using traditional instruments such as – the Ud, Kanun and traditional percussion.
The three talented musicians are graduates of "Rimon School of Music" (Israel) and have studied traditional music around the world. Their mastery in Turkish music, their "world touch" and close familiarity with Indian, African and Arabic music, have given them the ability to include all these elements in their creation, making it interesting, colorful and complete.
