Yom's new album out 19 Sept

cover silexLe Silence De L'Exode - Yom presents his most introspective project, which was originally a commission by the Festival d'Île-de-France, on the theme of diasporas. This album has remained faithful to the spirit of the live stage performance: everything has been recorded acoustically in one take.
Yom forms a quartet together with contemporary jazz double-bass player Claude Tchamitchian, cellist Farid D. and master of Persian percussion Bijan Chemirani

Distribution by Xango Music

Songlines #103 - "The ambitious tapestry is a pleasant homage to distant roots through instruments forging a common language that is smoothly meditative and uplifting."

Watch the quartet during their recording session
