ABOUT US

Habibti Ensemble is a 9 member musical collective of friends, formed at Kibbutz Samar, Israel, in 2013.

The members of Habibti Ensemble create a mesmerizing musical scene, that takes the listener to a journey between the summer nights of Baghdad to the sunsets of the Edom mountains.

 

 

Habibti Ensemble’s musical influences include both Arabic, Moroccan and Balkan roots, alongside Western contemporary music, Classical music and Jazz.

The Ensemble’s new, unique sound, combines the east and the west, the new and the old, the authentic and the modern, into a fresh, extraordinary musical experience.

 

Habibti Ensemble first got together in Kibbutz Samar at the southern desert of Israel, in the summer of 2012.

After a few months of living together in the Kibbutz, the members of the ensemble understood the musical potential of the group.

Their first show was a great success, and the musicians realized that they want keep playing and creating music together.

 

After a wonderful year in Samar, the group decided to move together to Jerusalem, where they live and create music to this day.
