A world of music

Sharon Ben Zadok certainly knows where her music comes from and she will, no doubt, captivate her Yellow Submarine audience when she plays there with her own band.

World music has been with us for some time now. When it first hit the airwaves and concert halls of the global entertainment scene over three decades ago, it was embraced with gusto. A few years down the line interest began to wane somewhat. It was as if music consumers had “been there and done that” and had heard just about every fusion of sonic ethnic baggage around.

However, there seems to be an inexhaustible array of cross-cultural blends out there and, when it is done properly, when the artists in question really know the ins and outs of the style in question, there is still plenty of room for surprises and emotive thrills.
