Hayelala(The Howl), a band from northern Israel, is a hypnotic human odyssey of poetics, groove and sound.
They play original folklore music, that takes it's time and pace from the gospel prayer houses, holy trumpets ,chinese calligraphy, as well as the staggering of owls on a high tree at night ,and the bright blooming of the evening star above them.
Multi layered folk arrangements weave around Natai Kallay’s original compositions. The songs are chants, prayers and lamentations that may help to carry the wounded to the wonder.
Love, longing and separation. Failure, fury and laughter. From this remembering, new blood flows in the heart chambers of the hall that we share, and the face of our beloved appears - this place and nothing else
