Tararam’s thrilling rhythms, music, and choreography have earned them a
worldwide reputation as “Israel’s Stomp.”

Tararam is a blend of rhythm and movement interwoven with tightly choreographed body drumming sequences; a true synchronized orchestra of recycled instruments! The creative performers produce extraordinary sounds from ordinary objects, industrial tools, originally designed percussion instruments, vocals, and live music.

“Witty, original, energetic and extraordinary.”

A powerful and compelling program following renowned cellist Amit Peled’s personal, musical, and spiritual journey. From his childhood growing up in a small kibbutz in Israel and listening to his mother singing the traditional tune “Eli Eli,” to playing Max Bruch’s “Kol Nidrei” as a young cellist and personally connecting with the Yom Kippur message, Peled explores the desire to balance tradition, identity, and self-expression. Among other works, the program features Mark Kopytman’s heart-wrenching “Kaddish” and Ernest Bloch’s beloved three scenes “From Jewish Life.”
