Shlomi Cohen

Grammy-nominated saxophonist Shlomi Cohen, born in Tel Aviv, Israel, has had a multicultural musical education, based in part on his surroundings both in Tel Aviv and New York City, and also from his Moroccan and Yemeni heritage.

This mix of styles in his sound has made him a much sought-after saxophonist.

Shlomi was part of the Grammy-nominated album “Frutero Moderno” by Gonzalo Grau & La Clave Secreta.

He is part of a special collaboration with Colombian Harpist Edmar Castaneda, bringing this incredible and unique form of music to the world.

As an integral part of the horn section Shlomi is playing with the Bernie Worrell Orchestra (founding member of Parliament-Funkadelic).
