Sivan Arbel is an Israeli vocalist, bandleader, composer, and arranger, based in Brooklyn, NY. Sivan describes as a contagious jazz-fusion style with a vibrant and powerful quality. Born with a deep passion for music and dance, the style “Sivan” is a fresh mix that harmoniously blends its Israeli-Mediterranean-Middle Eastern roots with international rhythmic influences with a refined jazz language of arrangements and improved scat. In English and Hebrew, it is all seasoned with rhythmic grooves that accompany his dance movements on stage that every live performance pushes the audience to dance and have fun. From the smallest clubs to festivals around the world, he overcomes linguistic barriers and cultural boundaries thanks to an atmosphere that combines music, movement, dance, pleasure, and fun.
During the Sivan master class, he will investigate the following topics:
- Full perception of odd times
- How to interpret a piece with your own personal style
- How to combine different musical influences in an original composition
- A live performance of Sivan will follow.
