Master bassist and guitarist, Yossi Fine’s busy career has seen him producing over 40 albums around the world and working with artists such as David Bowie, Lou Reed, Gil Evans Orchestra and Vieux Farka Touré, amongst others.
In his latest Blue Desert collaboration with drummer extraordinaire Ben Aylon, he weaves together a trance-inducing mix of dynamic dub and sounds of Dabke and Gnawa, utilising to the full the microtonal capabilities of his self-made guitar. Ben Aylon is inspired by his passion for Senegalese drumming traditions and has recorded and performed with Bombino, Doudou N’Diaye Rose, Awadi and Khaira Arba.
His custom hybrid pan-African drum kit provides the drive to the Blue Desert project, augmented live by the bass and keys of Sharon Mansur, all blowing up a mighty sandstorm of dense electric grooves.
