Gute-Gute, an Israeli based Indie-Folk band, creates soulful music full of groove, humor and passion, pain and joy. With elaborate, twisting melodies and Mediterranean rhythms, Gute-Gute presents a colorful mosaic of recollections and experiences acquired in their travels around the Mediterranean, in the Balkans and in East Europe.
The band was founded in 2009 by Aviv Kest (Guitar, Bouzouki and Vocals), Amitai Mann (Clarinet, Gaida and Vocals) and Yehuda Levavi (Contrabass and Vocals) during the time they lived together in an urban Kibbutz in south Jerusalem. They were then joined by Gershon Lizerson (Violin), Yanush Horowitz (accordion) and Meir Yaniger (Drums and Percussion).
Gute-Gute just released their debut album in October 2017. It is a culmination of the band’s diverse musical journey, combining instrumental compositions with expressive, poignant songs and texts.
