Golden oriental REAL instruments for your song!any genre .with love and care for all details. My main love is the Oud but I record also Saz and mid eastern violins.22 years in the industry.touring with artists ,recording for top Israeli musicians, composing and producing original music and for others.

My main speciality is middle eastern music and all the Fusion related .blending the Arabic/Turkish heritage with many styles is my cup of tea.if it’s a pop song, flamenco track , jazz ,metal . Whatever...I’ll fit in! This is what I do all my life .my main instrument is the Oud.but I usually record /perform also with the Saz and the violin(oriental flavored).I’m working with a wide range of artists, from the top israel mainstream singers to more indie/jazzy/electronic/world music projects of any kind(almost :)
Except from being a session musician and recording tracks in my home studio.I also compose and produce music for my own projects, and for others.
So ..if you want to add hot Oud/Saz/violin tracks for your songs, or want me to compose /produce stuff using the my skills and style, I’m here!

  2. Review by Israel Portnoy (Productions)

    Yaniv is an absolutely killer musician and multi-instrumentalist who I had the pleasure of working with, most recently on the Oud. When dealing with him, he was super personable, a sensitive player and his attention to detail is second to non. I cant recommend this guy enough!

    I had several recording sessions with Yaniv on Oud, Saz and Violin, and he always sounds perfect and gave his extraordinary touch to every project in any genre.

  4. Review by Udi b.

    Yaniv is a real artist. I invited him to play in my album and we had a great session, recording his oud and violin. he was bringing his soul and skill to the session and the outcome was more than I expected.
