Shye Ben-Tzur is an Israeli-bred, India-based musician and rising star in today’s world music scene. After seeing renowned Indian musicians Zakir Hussian and Hari Prasad Chaurasia perform in Israel some fifteen years ago, Shye was inspired to move to Rajasthan and study Qawwali music—a form of Sufi devotional music traditional to Northern India and Pakistan. For the past 10 years, he has been weaving Hebrew lyrics into his own Qawwali compositions, drawing from both Jewish and Indian musical traditions. With Israeli and Indian musicians playing together, Ben-Tzur and the Rajasthan Gypsies blend the mystical rhythms and melodies of Rajasthan with the distinctly spiritual cadence of Hebrew, creating a unique brand of music that embodies cross-cultural connection and religious pluralism. Their ‘world devotional groove music’ is beautifully eclectic, organically spiritual, and simply irresistible. Exceptional live performers, Shye and the Rajasthan Gypsies have earned rave reviews at festivals in Delhi, Mumbai, Australia, Israel, and Canada. This will be their debut concert in America.
