Eyal Sela on SoundBetter

I have played with top International musicians, including India Arie, Alicia Keys and The Idan Raichel Project, and at the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony. I’m a session musician and specialize in a wide variety of wind instruments - Flute, Clarinet, Indian Bansuri, Irish Penny Whistle, Turkish Clarinet, Egyptian Ney Flute and Saxophone.

* I have recorded for innumerable projects and albums, including the song "Feker Libi", which represented Israel in the 2020 Eurovision

* I have been a member of The Idan Raichel Project (Israel) for the past 15 years, during which time we won the 2014 MTV Role Model Award

* I recorded for Netta Barzilai, winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2019

I offer to play for you any and all of the wind instruments I play, in any combination you choose, at the highest level possible.

A musician’s skills, both on the stage, but especially in the studio, are measured differently during these times, so I offer you my abilities and skills in any individual or any combination of the wind instruments in which I specialize – Flute, Clarinet, Indian Bansuri, Penny Whistle, Turkish Clarinet, Egyptian Ney Flute and Saxophone.

    a true master!

    by Amit Ben Atar

    My name is Amit Ben Atar. I am a musical producer, have been working in the music industry for many years and I have a recording studio.
    I write music for theaters and movies and I produce albums for singers.
    I have been working with Eyal for many years.
    Eyal is the best woodwind multi-instrumentalist I have ever worked with over the years.
    He has a special sense, understanding and ability to interpret each sound to the right genre.
    I highly recommend Eyals’ services. Eyal is also very fine and gentlemanly
    and for me it’s always an uplifting experience to do recordings with him.

    Eyal is a virtuoso woodwind player and musician of the highest levels. I am a singer-songwriter, and he had recorded clarinet and flute for my debut album. Not only is he a master of his instruments technically, but he has the rare ability and talent of playing with an expressive feel, touch and emotion. He also improvises beautiful melodies and makes the improvisation magically connected and intertwined with the style and the feel of the music. Very professional, and a pleasure to work with.
