The Diaspora House is a project that combines original music by Udi Shlomo (drummer, arranger and composer) and new arrangements for Jewish songs, which creates energetic and warm music, with rich melodies and exciting rhythms.
The project began in 2013, playing Jewish music from around the world (therefore the name of the project is "The Diaspora House"), bringing the diverse sound of Ashkenazi (Eastern European), Sefaradi (Spanish) and Mizrachi (Arabic) Jewish music in new arrangements.
Now days the project is playing mainly original materials, in addition to arrangements of old Jewish songs.


"…Shlomo's percussion is in fact one of the most compelling aspects...he is all over his kit, splashing and clicking and ticking and thumping and rattling, sometimes with clear timing and patterns, sometimes just adding percussive color, and other times just flailing about even though he always remains purposeful and very, very clean. There are moments where his ability to produce what we hear with only his two hands and feet is shrouded in mystery...”

"Some music I enjoy in a intellectual way, and some music in a physical way, but in this concert I had it both...this music must go out there!"
