Qadim is a word found in both Arabic and Hebrew meaning ‘ancient’ as well as ‘that which will come.’ The ensemble’s repertoire includes Arabic, Jewish, Turkish Sufi, Hebrew-Yemenite, Armenian, Greek, Ladino and Moroccan music, celebrating the common musical and spiritual heritage of the region’s cultures, while honoring the great diversity found within them.

Acclaimed for their passionate performances, The Qadim Ensemble is comprised of accomplished and acclaimed musicians. The San Francisco based band has attracted a growing global audience who are responding to their authentic musicianship and timely message of peace and cross-cultural appreciation.

Their most recent CD, Eastern Wind, received rave reviews world wide, reaching #7 on Billboard’s World Music charts.

“Truly world music, some of the most open, human music you’ll hear . . . Essential”

— East Bay Express

“Beautifully presented, the players bring superb musicianship and palpable enthusiasm to each performance. Eliyahu’s ney flute along with Rachel’s succulent vocals are stars . . . creating a sense of human communication with the divine.”

— All Things Considered, NPR

“Listeners are deeply moved”

— Jewish Telegraph, London

“Visionary . . . achingly beautiful . . .”

— San Francisco Chronicle
