Music from the Promised Land (Naxos Label)

Duo Mantar’s album titled “Music from the Promised Land” on Naxos Label features new Israeli music works (world-premiere recordings) and new arrangements for mandolin and guitar.

Comprised of Israeli mandolinist Jacob Reuven and American guitarist Adam Levin, Duo Mantar is dedicated to representing the rich variety of music from Israel and to expanding the repertoire available for mandolin and guitar by actively commissioning the most sought after contemporary Israeli composers.

Reuven is a virtuoso mandolinist and the combination of the mandolin and the guitar on the recording delivers a sound that recalls folk, American Jazz, European klezmer traditions and Babylonian Jewry.
