International Jazz star Dekel Bor returns this winter to Israel for a tour of four intimate concerts, playing Folk music at Chelouche Gallery, Tel-Aviv, following the success of Bor\'s 2014 winter tour hosting Meir Shalev, Eyal Shani, Merav Michaeli & Moshe Ivgy.
In the 2015 winter tour Dekel Bor will be sharing the stage with master musicians of his childhood and principle soloists of The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra: Micha Haran – Acoustic Guitar, Eli Magen – Contrabass, and his father Alon Bor – Marimba & Percussion, recipient of the Ministry Of Education Lifetime Award.
Joining this very special quartet is Bor\'s mentor, multi Grammy winning producer Robert Sadin (Sting, Placido Domingo, Herbie Hancock).
“Robert, Micha, Eli, and of course my father have shaped my life and the man I became. In honor of our journey together and especially for the 2015 concerts, I have written folk and jazz compositions, exploring our long history together, from Bach to Sasha Argov.”
– Dekel Bor
