WATCH: Friday Afternoon Israeli Jazz

I would not normally associate the words “Israeli” and “Jazz”. But these guys – The Hazelnuts – are good.

And they are really making waves in the world of jazz.

The Hazelnuts are an Israel-based tight vocal harmony trio backed by a vintage jazz/swing band – an acoustic guitar, double bass, a washboard player and trumpet. Together, they take audiences on a journey back to 1930s New Orleans with a fun, funky and danceable sound that includes vintage, original and contemporary tunes.

Ever since releasing their debut EP in 2014, The Hazelnuts have been performing nonstop and gaining critical acclaim in Israel and abroad. The Hazelnuts have had the honor of performing before thousands of people at such varied venues as the Marseille Jazz des Cinqs Continents, the Festival des Cultures Juives in Paris, the Safaricom Jazz Festival in Nairobi, the Red Sea Jazz Festival, the Tel Aviv Jazz Festival, the Boswell Sisters Tribute Festival in New Orleans, the Days of Jerusalem Festival in Prague and Belgrade, and in the US with the Israel Story podcast team.

The Hazelnuts are: Shira Z. Carmel, Yifeat Ziv, and Anat Moshkovski – Vocals, Songs & Arrangement
