  • This event has passed.

A coincidentally shared surname only scratches the surface of the deep affinity between these two accomplished musicians. Both born in Israel, the two artists represent different, though highly complementary, musical paths.

Avi Avital, the classically trained, stylistically omnivorous mandolin wizard, has been praised by the New York Times for his “exquisitely sensitive playing” and “stunning agility.”

Omer Avital, the virtuoso bassist and oud player has been called one of the most exciting musicians to come onto the jazz scene in the last twenty years.

In Avital Meets Avital, they co-lead a blazing quartet that unites jazz with influences from Israel, Morocco, and beyond.

Washington Performing Arts performances at Sixth & I are made possible by the Abramson Family Foundation.
