RELEASE INFORMATION

Elements of Malian music, klezmer & jazz intertwine as Oran Etkin defines a new paradigm for world-inspired jazz with his debut recording, Kelenia. Hailed as a "woodwind maestro" by Public Radio International's Afropop Worldwide, and as "a great clarinetist" and an "excellent improviser" by The New York Times' Ben Ratliff, twenty-five year old rising-star Etkin's 2009 release, “Kelenia,” reached #10 on the Jazzweek World Music Radio Chart and has gained unanimous press raves.
