The Reconnect Series: Music – Telavana

July 15, 2021 - 5:30pm-7pm

After spending the past 15 years working at the forefront of New York City’s Jazz scene while performing, recording and touring with some of the world’s top Afro-Cuban, Latin and Salsa artists, flute virtuoso Itai Kriss fuses the sounds of his native Israel with those of his adopted homelands in the Americas to create TELAVANA. From the desert shores of Israel to the tropical beaches of Cuba, TELAVANA bridges the musical spheres of the Middle East and the Caribbean by combining Timba, Soul, North African music and Jazz to create a unique and lively mix of rhythms and textures.

Televana is:

  • Itai Kriss – flute
  • Wayne Tucker – trumpet
  • Cesar Orozco – keyboards
  • Tamir Shmerling – bass
  • Dan Aran – drums
  • Marcos López – percussion


Televana are part of the Reconnect Series. The Reconnect series features music and an outdoor art gallery/studio on Tuesdays from 12:30pm-2pm and Thursdays from 6pm-7pm, on Little 6th Avenue and Dominick Street.
