Ari Hoenig is a jazz drummer, composer and educator known for his unusual and intense approach to drumming emphasising complex rhythms in direct harmony with other group members. Ari is widely noted particularly for his drumming not being relegated to just keeping tempo, or being a side issue to the music he plays in, but rather for elevating drumming as an indispensable part of the performance.
Nitai Hershkovits is an Israeli jazz and classically trained pianist and composer.
