"Olam Qatan" bookstore is WAY more than a just a place to get great spiritual books and ethnic music. It is one of the main hubs of spiritual and interfaith connection in Jerusalem. Run by Yaaqub-a great friend AND devoted fan of EMQ- "Olam Qatan" has been been "benefiting" us all for almost 15 years, and now it's our turn to help it! Help keep this store and amazing asset to Jerusalem alive! EMQ will be providing the music for this fundraising event where sitters, standers, and dancers will all be welcome.

Semantra @ Tuesday Night Live in Jerusalem
“The group incorporates Arab and Jewish overtones—windswept melodies, hand percussion, majestic oud and tanbur—and lace it all with electronic loops and a heavy bottom that sounds like the desert itself....There’s something natural about this blend of East and West, of Arab and Jew, that, in these conflict-riddled days, can’t help but make a statement both musical and political.”
