Israeli composer, producer, film creator and multi-instrumentalist Kutiman will perform for the first time in front of Belgrade audience on May 31st at the BitefArtCafe club.
During the concerts, he will present his sixth studio album, “Open”, released in October 2022. This album brings twelve psychedelic songs inspired by classic soul and Middle Eastern influences.
After nine years of isolation and deep immersion in the study of music, as well as life and self-discovery, Kutiman returns to the city and establishes a connection with society, accepting his roots and the welcome of the unknown. His music represents a fresh reinterpretation of his eclectic sound solutions.
Kutiman, whose real name is Ophir Kutiel, moved to Tel Aviv at the age of seventeen to study jazz at the prestigious Rimon music college, but he gained his true musical education by working at a record store where he listened to Parliament, Amon Tobin, trip-hop, and jungle, which became the basis of his latest album, “Open.”
Kutiman’s music is an influential combination of different styles, including the music of the J Dilla tribute band Abstract Orchestra, “Tosca” and “DJ Vadim”, contemporary indie artists like Michael Kiwanuka and Johnny Marr, psychedelic sound, Thai funk, Afrobeat/jazz fusion, guitar lines and meditative sounds inspired by John Coltrane. Kutiman uses these diverse influences to create an infectious groove that continues to evolve and spread.
