Yinon Muallem

Yinon Muallem was born in Israel in 1968 to parents of Iraqi origin. After earning his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tel Aviv, he found himself drawn to the world of music. Starting with Middle Eastern percussion, he then began learning the oud and composing his own music. His exposure to the beauty of Ottoman Turkish music moved him to study the Turkish oud with master Yurdal Tokcan, and in 2002 he moved to Istanbul and joined the Istanbul Sazendeleri (Istanbul Instrumentalists) ensemble. Under the sponsorship of the Turkish Ministry of Culture, the group is composed of some of the leading virtuosos in Turkish music. Muallem played with Istanbul Sazendeleri throughout Turkey and abroad, including special concerts in Japan and the Czech Republic. During his ten years in Istanbul, he conducted a host of inter cultural music projects, taking part in concerts with his group in Israel and arranging joint concerts by Israeli and Turkish musicians in Istanbul. In 2010, he produced a concert project, titled “Meetings and Music in Istanbul”, which brought together musicians from different countries who were living and creating music in Istanbul. His versatility and curiosity have brought him into collaboration with a variety of musicians including Ross Daly (Greece); Omer Faruk Tekbilek (Turkey-United States); the Tekfen Philarmonic Orchestra, İstanbul Sazendeleri, Akin Eldes, Anjelika Akbar (Turkey); Sirin Pancaroglu (Turkey): Alim Gasimov (Azerbaijan); Ganesh Kumar, Subash Chandran (India) and many more.
