The Diaspora House is a project that combines original music by Udi Shlomo (drummer, arranger and composer), and new arrangements for old Jewish songs, which creates energetic and warm music, with rich melodies and exciting rhythms.
The project began in 2013, playing Jewish music from around the world (therefor the name of the project is "The Diaspora House"), bringing the diverse sound of Ashkenazi (Eastern European), Sefaradi (Spanish) and Mizrachi (Arabic) Jewish music in new arrangements.
Now days, the project is playing mainly original materials, in addition to the arrangements of Jewish songs, while preserving this unique sound.
The project is led by Udi Shlomo. Udi was born in Israel (Kibbutz Nachshon) and immigrated to Norway (Trondheim) in 2010, after 10 years of successful career in the Israeli music scene, and played with some of the best musicians in Israel. Udi performed with international artists such as Sheila Jordan, Lou Soloff, Judy Silvano and Chuck Israel, when they performed in Israel.
"…Shlomo's percussion is in fact one of the most compelling aspects...he is all over his kit, splashing and clicking and ticking and thumping and rattling, sometimes with clear timing and patterns, sometimes just adding percussive color, and other times just flailing about even though he always remains purposeful and very, very clean. There are moments where his ability to produce what we hear with only his two hands and feet is shrouded in mystery...”

"Some music I enjoy in an intellectual way, and some music in a physical way, but in this concert I had it both...this music must go out there!"
