LP version. The Hoodna Orchestra is a 12-member orchestra who studies and investigates the African origins of western popular music; Ofel is their second album. The Orchestra was formed in 2012, in the south side of Tel Aviv, by a group of musicians, and it functions as a collective and a record label. Hoodna's musical director is the guitarist and composer Ilan Smilan. The cultural and musical environment that surrounds the group has a great effect on its creative process. Exposure to Ethiopian, Eritrean and Arabic musical traditions, coupled with 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. Personnel: Elad Gelert - baritone saxophone; Rom Shani - alto saxophone; Eylon Tushiner - tenor saxophone; Uri Selinger - trombone; Asaf Oseasohn - trumpet; Sefi Zisling - trumpet; Arthur Krasnobaev - trumpet; Tomer Zuk - keyboards; Amir Sadot - bass guitar; Ilan Smilan - electric guitar; Matan Asayag - drums; Rani Birenbaum - percussion; Shahar Ber - percussion; Raz Eytan - percussion.
