Featuring artists whose backgrounds include Israel (Asaf Ophir), Lebanon and Syria (Faisal Zedan) and Iran (Sirvan Manhoobi), the Dashti Trio brings a unique musical and cultural blend to the concert stage.

The Dashti Trio began with a peace concert in 2017, bringing together musicians from different parts of the Middle East to share their cultures. Each coming from a unique background and with his own independent career, they continued to collaborate on numerous projects and finally decided to form a dedicated trio. With a mixture of voice, clarinet, flutes, oud, and percussion, they bring the beauty of each individual culture as well as a few refreshing combinations that may never have existed before. Come and hear avaz with a scent of spices, hijaz with a flourish, and klezmer with a twist!


With: Asaf Ophir – woodwinds, vocals; Sirvan Manhoobi – oud, vocals and Faisal Zedan – percussion, vocals
