Reader Glen W. sent me a YouTube clip from an Israeli group calling themselves "Anna RF". On their Web site, they describe themselves as follows:
We’re ANNA RF, An Electro Ethnic Reggae band who creates music that combines the beauty of different cultures and brings people together in a joyful celebration of unity. The group’s sound is a mix between east & west, our vision stands for blending ancient and modern instruments with a live-electronic touch.
Our shows are known as parties 🙂 people are coming to dance and feel free.
The band exists since 2012. In these years we performed in many countries in big crowded festivals as Ozora, Ancient trance festival, Psi Fi, Edinburgh fringe festival and many more.
. . .
The phrase anna RF is an Arabic-Hebrew expression which has a double meaning – “I know” and “I don’t know”, That stand for the philosophy of the group.
I'd never thought of a combination like "Electro Ethnic Reggae" before, so I was naturally intrigued. Their music is certainly easy on the ear. Here are four selections from YouTube.
First, here's the clip Glen sent me. Anna RF join with Indian group Naadistan to create harmony.
Here's "Why?", composed and recorded in the Alps in 2014.
This one's called "Weeping Eyes".
And finally, here's the title track from their album "Flight Mode".
It's certainly interesting music, and rather different from what I normally play. You'll find more on the group's YouTube channel, and at the links they provide beneath each video there.
