Muhammad Zahayka (oud and nay, the arab flute),
Danny Felsteiner (contrabass),
and Haytham Sharbati (darbouka, daf, singing).

Muhammad lives in Sawahra and Haytham in Azariyeh, East of Jerusalem.
Danny is Jewish Israeli and lives in Jerusalem.
The three perform popular and folk oriental music, as well as original
music written by the group, in Arabic and Hebrew.
The group's credo is that music can bring people together on the basis of listening, respect, inter-cultural exchange and curiosity, and that by showing how musicians in our region can communicate regardless of their religion and origin, so can the listeners.
The group has performed in Jerusalem (west and east) Tel-Aviv, Haifa and
in Sderot, public ranging from children to adults, Palestinians and
In Silwan, a Palestinian village in East Jerusalem, the group has volunteered to give music workshops to Palestinian children in the Silwan Ta'azef music school, and has performed for the residents.
