Hoodna Orchestra

The Hoodna Orchestra is a 10-member orchestra which explores the dark and mysterious edges of funk and groove. The Orchestra was established in 2012 in southern Tel Aviv by a group of musicians, functioning today as a collective, as well as a record label. The cultural and musical environment surrounding the group has a great effect on its creative process. Exposure to Ethiopian, Eritrean and Arabic musical traditions, alongside an ongoing study and exploration of different jazz styles, creates a unique blend which has made The Hoodna Orchestra one of the most appreciated and sought-after live shows in Israel.
