Musician, composer and Clarinet player Harel Shachal is a leading voice in today’s growing Jazz-Middle-Eastern artistic scene, worldwide. ​His devotion to the old tradition of Middle-Eastern music (Maqam) as well as his knowledge of Jazz are the basis of the unique approach he presents via his oriental Clarinet.

​Harel’s music has since taken him around the world to perform in Festival Nuits du Sud (France), Festival Internacional Cervantino (Mexico), Jewish Museum (Berlin) and Umerzelt Music Fest (Germany), just to name a few .

​As an Israeli musician Shachal has performed and recorded with some of the country’s leading musicians – Dudu Tasa, The Balkan Beat Box, Ahuva Ozery, Avraham Tal and Ilay Botner. His compositions and playing have been featured as film scores to Pretty Persuasion (Director: Marcus Siega), Ananada (2016), August (2011) and Israel Without Borders (2000). Harel’s soundtracks to theater include Stephan (1997) and Oil on Canvas – winner of the National Fringe Theatre prize (1999).
