Over the last two decades Internationally acclaimed bassist, singer, composer Avishai Cohen, has earned his reputation as one of the world’s greatest bassists.
It is however as a composer that his musical statement has grown extensively throughout the world, attracting large live audiences, listeners and passionate fans.
Avishai is back on stage again after a long period off the road due to the Covid 19 pandemic worldwide.
“I have missed so much the stage, my fans, and touring in general. I am so thrilled to perform live music with my fans in safer environments and conditions; music heals”
Without a doubt, Avishai Cohen is one of the best bassists of his time, captivating large live audiences, listeners and passionate fans worldwide.
With his new trio line-up, Cohen will present music from his latest trio album ‘Shifting Sands’ (release May 2022) which include brand new original compositions, alongside performing fan favourites and repertoire from his vast musical library.
Shifting Sands highlights the special alchemy that Cohen’s music provides :
“fresh and expansive melodic lines, diverse and sophisticated rhythms and a musical elegance that only he can achieve.”
Cohen, who has always distinguished himself in the past as a great promoter and discoverer of new, young gifted musicians, once again Cohen brings exceptional within this new trio configuration pianist Elchin Shirinov and young Israeli drummer Roni Kaspi.
“The synchronicity Cohen shares with pianist Elchin Shirinov, as they deftly harmonise on melody lines. Young drummer Roni Kaspi is a revelation, an often-effortless player with a graceful control of the kit.”
Shirinov from Azerbaijan can also be heard on Avishai’s masterful ‘’A once in a lifetime dream come true ‘’ orchestral album “Two Roses”, released in April 2021.
Roni Kaspi, born in Israel in July 2000, has just completed her studies at Berklee College of Music, USA. During the lockdown, she met Avishai Cohen, with whom she performed virtually on Facebook. This immediately developed into a strong musical connection, which led to her being invited to partner Avishai on tour from September 2020.
