Event details

Internationally acclaimed bassist, vocalist and composer Avishai Cohen celebrates his 50th birthday.

To mark this half-century milestone, Cohen is embarking on an ambitious global tour performing 50 gigs in 50 countries. Australia is among them, a first for the artist who has won a global fan base with his dynamic, thought provoking music that embraces everything from jazz, pop and classical to Israeli-Arab folk songs.

This virtuoso double bassist left his native Israel in the late 1980s for New York City’s melting pot of sounds where he played all types of jazz, funk and fusion, eventually joining Chick Corea’s Origin band. Cohen has since forged one of the most influential sounds in contemporary jazz. His driving, bass-lead originals match complex timing, hard-hitting grooves and an agile voice that adds a powerful emotional dimension to his music. The 50:50:50 project resonates with the spirit of inclusion and solidarity that has defined Cohen’s music from the beginning. He’ll cross borders and break down barriers, creating a ‘global village’ of music in every performance.
