ensemble KATAN

Led by the visionary composer and violinist Meg Okura, Ensemble KATAN takes you on a whimsical and transcendental musical journey exploring the exoticism inspired by Japanese, Jewish, and Jazz influences. The name "Ensemble KATAN," drawn from the Hebrew term for "small ensemble," encapsulates the intimate nature of this musical odyssey with Okura’s violin, Israeli composer Yotam Ishay’s piano, Steve Shinji Whipple’s bass, and Ronen Itzik’s percussion, inviting spontaneous collective improvisations. The result is a blend of meditative introspection and invigorating ecstasy, where moments of melancholy coexist with the thrill of unpredictability.
