Different people, different journeys, one meeting point – music
Masa is the product of all the knowledge and experience we have acquired, while traveling the various roads around the world. We have put everything into an exciting and dynamic performance that opens people’s hearts and brings them together.
The band was born in 2016 on the roof of a small apartment in Tel Aviv, after each band member went through a personal and musical search of his own. Different hearts meeting between the sounds and beating together to the rhythm of musical creation, gave birth to this mesmerizing project that conveys an optimistic and universal message that connects and unites all people.
The show features original music played with ancient ethnic instruments and traditional percussion instruments from around the world, while incorporating modern instruments, such as electronic drums, synthesizer, guitar and bass, taking the audience on a journey into the different rhythms of the heart.
The band's name and musical content were inspired by the Indian word “masala”, which means “a mixture of spices”: a unique mix of different flavors of Indian, West African and Israeli music combined with hip-hop, jazz, pop, Yemenite music, desert groove, Turkish music and other influences.
