Ariel began playing chromatic harmonica at the age of 7, and has trained with top musicians in Israel including Dror Adler, Anat Fort, Yaaki Levy, and Yuval Cohen. After moving to New York in 2018, Ariel studied with the likes of Aaron Parks, Reggie Workman, Jane Ira Bloom, Anat Cohen, Jon Cowherd, Tony Malaby, and Kirk Nurock. Over the years she recorded and performed with some of the top musicians around New York and Israel including William Parker, Andrew Cyrille, Steve Swell, Achinoam Noa Nini, Miki Gavrielov, Davis D’aor, and as a solo performer with The Jerusalem Orchestra East and West. Working to extend the harmonica’s boundaries by creating original music, Ariel Bart is bringing a fresh sound to Jazz. The Jazz influences from her mentors are evident on her debut album, In Between, set for release on May 20, 2021, yet she stretches into unknown territory with the unique sound of the harmonica. Hints of Jonathan Levy and Tin Hat Trio are there in her solos, backed by a free flowing composition and playing from Mayu Shviro (Cello), Moshe Elmakias (Piano), David Michaeli (Double Bass), and Amir Bar Akiva (Drums). The interplay with the band highlights the unique feelings evoked by a lead harmonica - always longing with a touch of sadness but punctuated with moments of pure joy.
