Kutiman Orchestra

kutiman - ben palhovKutiman (Ophir Kutiel; born 1982) is a true phenomenon –  a musician, composer, producer, and a pioneering video artist.

Last year, Kutiman  re-emerged the Kutiman Orchestra – his super group band consisting of 7-9 musicians –. The Kutiman Orchestra already shared the same stage with DJ shadow in his first ever show in Tel Aviv. They offer an amazing afro psych jazzy adventure.

Kutiman burst onto the music scene in 2007 with the worldwide release of his critically acclaimed and self-titled debut album.  Having received raving reviews from top music critics (Pitchfork, XLR8R, The Fader, DJ Magazine), Kutiman has left quite an impression on the world of music. He was named the “Psychedelic Funk Architect” by the Straight No Chaser magazine (UK).

In 2009 Kutiman released his groundbreaking project, Thru-You. In this project Kutiman mixed dozens of unrelated YouTube videos to create an online album which has received more than 11 million pages views to date. Time Magazine included Thru-You in their 50 best inventions of 2009.  These days he is releasing his follow up project “Thru You Too”. The first single, “Give It Up” has reached over 1 million views in less than a week.
