A mix of original Mediterranean jazz infused with authentic flavors from all over the world. Rooted & grounded in Israel.
Selah Collective is a 5-piece music ensemble. We play original Mediterranean jazz infused with authentic flavours from all over the world, rooted & grounded in Israel. Our musical influences include Avishai Cohen, Ibrahim Maalouf, Snarky Puppy and more. Our full official release ‘Belonging’ (LP) was released on January 18th, 2019. The album includes 8 original compositions. We are constantly playing across the country in various venues, featuring musical guests from the local and international scenes. Plans for 2019 include appearances on several European festivals (TBA). Previous notable appearances include Kaunas Jazz Festival (2019), Ashdod Jazz Series in Klang (2019) as well as multiple participations in the “Divercities” festival (2018) in Grenoble, France. The band was founded in 2009 by Slava Shoolman (Bass/Arrangements) & Daniel Rososki (Piano/Composition) and has been playing with the current personnel since late 2016. Selah Collective’s dynamic sound is also built around guest appearances by top players of the local & global scene. Recurrent flavours are the Oud, Sax and unique vocalists.
