Bustan Abraham Quartet is made up of three founding members of Bustan Abraham, Taiseer Elias, Amir Milstein and Zohar Fresco, recently joined by bassist Haggai Cohen Milo. One of the most important and respected world music bands and a major pioneer of the Mediterranean music genre in Israel, Bustan Abraham incorporated musical traditions from East and West, as well as Jewish and Arab musicians, and created original art music at the highest level. Since its inception in the early ’90s the band has become a landmark in world music and influenced many musicians and bands that followed in Israel and abroad.

Between 1992 and 2003 the Bustan Abraham released seven albums and performed all over the world. Among the artists worthy of mention who were guests on their albums and performances are Zakir Hussain, Hariprasad Chaurisia, Ross Daly, Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Achinoam Nini and many others.
In 2003, Bustan Abraham disbanded, its members going separate musical ways. In 2012 Taiseer, Amir, Zohar and Haggai decided to join forces and re-establish Bustan Abraham as a quartet, once again combining musical concepts with the intention to continue to create an original bridge between musical cultures.
In November 2012 the quartet held its maiden performances in Jerusalem and won unprecedented success.
The show will open with a warm-up set by Nano Stern, sensational young singer-songwriter-guitarist from Chile. Riding the New Wave of South American folk music, Nano combines traditional and contemporary styles and serves up socially- and spiritually-conscious music that is a treat for the ears, feet and heart. (Nano will give a full show of his own on 4/7/13)
The Bustan Abraham show will take place at Ein Zeitim Ranch, in nature near Tzfat. Entrance by the Tomb of Rabbi Yehuda Bar Elai, between tzomet Birya and tzomet Ein Zeitim.
Come early for casual food, drink, and social gathering and stay after for the party in a beautiful new outside location among the olive trees and terraces, with views of Tzfat, Nachal Amud and Har Meron.
