Daphna Sadeh Neu

Daphna Sadeh is a composer and a double-bass player. Her compositions reflect and integrate the diversity of musical cultures she has experienced as a musician. Her music is inspired by rooted Jewish music Mediterranean and Middle Eastern music.

Daphna brings together performers from contrasting backgrounds and traditions, creating a seamless musical tapestry of cross-cultural dialogue.

“One of the main aims in my musical creativity” she says “is to create a way of dialogue between cultures in conflict.”

Her initial training as a student of classical music was at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. After graduating she joined The East West Ensemble, Israel, leading to seven years of international performing and recording.

Sadeh's playing and composing developed further through her involvement with Middle Eastern and Arabic music, while performing in festivals as well as session work, TV recordings and theatre performances.

She then co-formed the group Eve's Women. The music of the group is an amalgam of Jazz Klezmer and Rock. Since then she performed in various festivals and venues in the far East, USA, South Africa and Europe.
