On Thursday (8:30 p.m.) 46-year-old Jerusalemite cellist Rali Margalit will play material from her latest album Soosim (Horses) at a concert at Confederation House in the capital.

The Jerusalem show is the first of a three-date tour, with more concerts lined up at the Felicia Blumenthal Center in Tel Aviv at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday (February 26) and at the Ensemble Theater in Herzliya on March 4 at 1 p.m.

Soosim showcases Margalit’s seasoned instrumental skills on the cello and on her unique cell-hu, the only one of its kind in the world, built for her in Australia. The cell-hu is based on a membrane, a cone, which is placed inside the body of the cello with a set of seven sympathetic strings that run below the four cello strings. Margalit says she had to develop a new technique to play the cell-hu, but that it gives her a richer sound, more flexibility and opens up numerous playing opportunities in terms of sound and shades.

Soosim offers an eclectic array of ethnic courses, including hassidic inflections, ecclesiastical colorings and Western classical and Arabic classical music, jazzy motifs and Middle Eastern airs, with some Irish-oriented seasoning.

Margalit’s forthcoming concerts feature kanun player Elad Gabbay, Hagit Rosmarin on flute and Lev Elman on percussion.
