We just returned recently from our CD release tour which took us to various locations up the east coast, Toronto Canada, The UK (at the amazing Limmud UK conference) and Israel, and culminated with a really fun show at this year’s Golden Fest in Brooklyn. We made lots of new friends and had a great time playing the new compositions.
Here’s a little taste from the Golden Fest show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdM9SxZRFnk
Please check back for updates on new performance dates as we plan our schedule for the rest of the year!

Here’s some info about the album:
Dual Sonic Citizenship: Isra-Alien Finds Global Resonance, Guitar Grace in Israeli Roots
High-energy Balkan beats and mid-century Israeli hits. Russian lyricism and flamenco flourishes. Nylon and steel.
With two guitars and a second-nature connection, Isra-Alien finds the deep ties that bind rock and jazz, Israeli music and global sounds. Powered by the masterful technique and close friendship of jazz guitarist Oren Neiman and rock guitarist Gilad Ben-Zvi, the duo’s acoustic music moves effortlessly from rootsy to refined on their second album, Somewhere is Here! (release:November 2, 2012). They find wry, Gitano-esque twists on blazing dances (“Horah Alien”) and turn klezmer songs into sensuous feats of guitar nimbleness, inspired by everything from Astor Piazzolla to the Greek bouzouki.
