BAHARAT (Arabic for spice blend) is a band based in Brooklyn, they play music influenced by Middle to Far Eastern cultures. Common among those cultures is the use of mircotones not found in Western music and sympathetic strings that resonate without being played directly. By combining instruments from different countries, Baharat seeks to expose the listener to music which provides a sound that is both familiar to the cultures they borrow from and unique unto itself. Performances include traditional folk songs from the Middle East along with original compositions, occasionally accompanied by guest musicians and dancers.
