It is not a bad idea for an artist to gain inspiration from all sorts of ethnic and cultural sources.

That mind-set has been around for millennia, ever since the superpowers of the day decided they’d like to have an empire and set about conquering other countries and cultures – but Daniel Oren’s mixed ethnic baggage did not go down too well in certain quarters in his formative years.
