In 2003, five extremely talented musicians from Jerusalem, Israel, and around the world, found each other and came together to form one of the most unique and dynamic forces in the music world as we know it today. Suitability named “Coolooloosh”, a Jerusalemite word for celebration and joy; this is precisely what the band exhumes with each and every exciting performance. Wooing fans around the world with their intelligent blend of genres, Coolooloosh combining Hip Hop, Rap, Jazz, and Funk, is one of Israel’s most popular groups, and is one of the very few well known emerging acts that can pull it off. Consistently, pushing the envelope, the band is destined to break internationally.

A diverse group of individuals, from varied musical backgrounds the band consists of Yuval Gerstein (Guitar and Vocal), Rebel Sun (MC), Ori Winokur (Bass and vocal), Arik Levy (Saxophones),Sefi Zisling (Trumpet) and Yogev Shitrit on Drums. Combining both English and Hebrew text into their songs and unique blend of genres only further enhances their distinctive style.

Following an extremely zealous show at the renown Sodra Theatre in Stockholm Sweden in May 2007, Coolooloosh forged on in August and September to continue an extremely successful and productive tour of Europe performing in the UK, Germany, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, and Hungary, including the well known “Spancirfest” festival in Croatia, gaining major attention and vast amounts of new fans at every show.

Coolooloosh and its members are dead serious in their quest to create awareness for their project. Recently at the invitation of Grammy® nominated engineer/producer David Ivory (The Roots, Patti Labelle, Erykah Badu) the band traveled to the US in January of 2008 to begin pre-production and the tracking of their new full length album with Ivory at the helm. “These guys are really something special and unique. When my associate brought them to my attention, it was a no-brainer that I had to work with them” stated Ivory.

The new album “Elements Of Sound” will be released this summer by “Hatav Ha Shmini” a major record label in Israel, and will receive worldwide digital distribution.
Coolooloosh featured the Soul Legend – Bunny Sigler on two tracks of this new release as well as the world famous percussionist Pablo Batista (Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, Diana Reeves).

In conjunction with recording the exciting new album, Coolooloosh toured across the US, including a show at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC , Avalon in Los- Angeles , House of Blues in San Diego , World Café Live in Philadelphia and finished the USA tour with a sold out show at the well known Joe’s Pub in Manhattan.
Coolooloosh will embark on a European tour in September and a USA – Canada tour later this year to celebrate the release of album.

Look for this emerging artist to take the world by storm and break wide open onto the scene and quickly become a powerhouse in the international music community.
