Bint El Funk is a pioneering Indie-oriental groove band that has founded Yemen Funk. The band was established in Jerusalem four years ago and has already managed to attract attention performing in clubs and music festivals all over Israel. The band is known for its tight rhythm section, the quality of the brass instrumentals, and the unique voice of singer Shiran Karny.
The band initially devoted itself to converting traditional Jewish Yemenite songs to a modern groove, but soon added original material to the pot, slowly creating a unique style; diverse, yet cohesive.
Bint El Funk's style is based mainly on a combination of funk with traditional Jewish Yemenite music, influenced by Afro beat, jazz, Mediterranean music, psychedelic-Turkish music and more.
Alongside the Yemenite texts are love songs, social protest songs, Bedouin nonsense, and poetry. Each performance quickly becomes a native tribal party with sounds, rhythms, colours, and scents, which unite on a thread connecting Sana'a in Yemen, Harlem in the US, and the Shaariya neighborhood in Petach Tikva.
