from Vancouver BC
Acid-klezmer, Yiddish bebop, Gypsy funk, and Balkan blues. Vancouver’s Olam performs energetic, passionate, and playful music that is both accessible and exotic. Groove to a fusion of old and new, East and West. You won’t be able to resist dancing to their delightfully infectious world beat tunes that combine jazz, salsa, bossa nova, merengue, bebop, rap, and reggae. The band features the haunting and dramatic vocals of Noa Ben-Mazia, the virtuoso clarinet/sax of jazz veteran Mike Braverman, and the super-hot accordion of Moshe Renert. With David Corman guitar, Brayden Wise bass, Jason Overy drums.
