Mosh Ben-Ari was born in Afula, Israel in 1970 to a Yemenite mother and an Iraqi father. Though he first discovered music through the traditional ethnic chants that were part of his everyday life, he eventually went on to study music formally throughout the world in places such as India and in the Sinai and Sahara deserts.
In 1997 Ben-Ari founded the world music ensemble “SHEVA” with band members who had Muslim and Jewish backgrounds, and, in 2001, began his solo career, writing music with a blend rock, soul, reggae, and world music.
Here is Ben-Ari in a live performance of his hit song, “Jah is One.”
