The Ariel Kasler Quintet performs original jazz compositions and arrangements influenced by Middle Eastern, Jewish, and Israeli music. While each musician in the ensemble contributes a highly individualistic voice, years of collaboration amongst ensemble members create a coherent group sound. The Quintet released the albums “Above the Sound” (2015) and “Make it Bloom” (2022).
