Boisterous, joyous, and irresistible, rhythmic music that makes you want to dance, Yemen Blues conjures up a rich and diverse musical palette with percussion, oud, horns, and strings. Founded by Ravid Kahalani in 2010, Yemen Blues creates an original work featuring Yemen and West African sounds with contemporary grooves, blues, funk, mambo, and African soul. This performance is generously underwritten by The Maurice Amado Foundation.

The group appeared in Paste Magazine’s list of 10 International Acts to Watch and performed a captivating, star-making set at the 2012 globalFEST—the most prestigious world music festival in America. The band is currently working on the follow-up to their stellar 2011 debut. With members hailing from Israel, Finland, Uruguay, and the US, Yemen Blues captures myriad global influences, blending them in to a seamless, soulful, and raucous stew.

Please note, the Houston Zoo will be hosting a private event around the same time as the Yemen Blues concert. Patrons attending the Miller performance may wish to forgo parking in the Zoo lot, and park in one of the many lots surrounding the Theatre. For a full list of lots, please click here.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am-1pm.  If tickets remain at 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill.
