The veteran Hagiga Sextet was founded by Alon Farber and Dani Benedikt at 2001. Both are Berklee College of Music alumni. Alon was awarded the Prime Minister Award for Jazz composers (2016). The Hagiga released three CD so far. The first two were released in the prestigious label Fresh Sound Records (Barcelona).
Both CD got enthusiastic reviews from important sites like: JazzTimes.com, JazzReview.com and AllAboutJazz.com.
In 2015-16 the group recorded its third CD “New Directions”. The CD features the Brazilian percussionist Joca Perpignan.
Hagiga received funding from ACUM for this CD. In her shows and records Hagiga collaborated with important artists like Omri Mor, Eli Degibri, Anat Cohen, Avishai Cohen (trp), Ofer Ganor, Omer Klein and more.
“Hagiga” has developed its own sound along the years, sound that comes from the unique personality of each member of the group.
The members of the sextet use these original compositions as a launch pad from which they take off to create a new and exciting atmosphere, spiced with the savory fragrances and flavors of the Mediterranean.
The music of “Hagiga” is influenced by such artists as Jazz Messengers, Wayne Shorter, Brad Mehldau and Joshua Redman.
