  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) February 11, 2015 - American/Israeli duo Shlomit & RebbeSoul released their debut album, "The Seal of Solomon," today (2-10-15). Comprised of Yemenite singer Shlomit Levi and guitarist RebbeSoul (aka Bruce Burger), the new album offers an enticing blend of world music instrumentation with traditional Yemenite folk songs, thus bringing modern sensibilities to ancient sounds and creating a truly unique, contemporary sound. Drawing from numerous sources, some of the songs set music to poems by the foremost 17th century Poet of Yemen, Rabbi Shalom Shabazi, acknowledged as one of the greatest Jewish poets.

    "Shlomit & RebbeSoul are the perfect combination for the fusion of ancient spiritual melodies and modern engaging tunes. Shlomit & RebbeSoul make ancient music rock." - Ben Bresky, Israel National Radio

    "The Seal of Solomon is a forward-looking vision and a shared contemporary perspective on a traditional ethos…The spirit of this work has sprung from the virtue of unity… and it is this thinking which is vital to the evolution and coexistence of differing belief systems over shared territories." - Heathen Harvest

    "Audiences are lauding [Shlomit Levi] as the new Ofra Haza." - Jerusalem Post

    Shlomit Levi, born in Israel and now living in the U.S., grew up surrounded by the culture and music of her ancestral home of Yemen. A highly respected singer in her native Israel, she is well known as the voice on "Sapari," the hit song by Orphaned Land, Israel's groundbreaking group of Oriental Heavy Metal music. RebbeSoul, originally from upstate New York and now living in Israel, is lauded as having created the modern version of Jewish Roots and World Music. His 1995 "Fringe of Blue" release remains one of the best selling Jewish music albums of all time. As Shlomit adds a Yemenite spice to RebbeSoul's musicianship, each brings their unique influences into the mix to create a wholly new genre of music.

    Shlomit & RebbeSoul are currently preparing for shows in the U.S. this spring and summer.
