The band Aravah Quintet started its journey in spring 2006, when the two bandleaders Boris Mogilevski (Israel) and Ulas Aksunger (Germany/Turkey) met during their studies at the Conservatory of Rotterdam “Codarts” where Boris studied jazz guitar and Ulas latin percussion.
After a couple of fruitful musical sessions with hummus, pita and cay the foundation of their first band named Noahs Ark, (now a name of one of their compositions) was laid down. After going through changes in instrumentation and arrangements the band came to find their characteristic sound in their current formation as a quintet, with Jasper van Damme on Soprano sax, Eleonora Roussou on flutes and Jeroen Vierdag on bass.
