Based out of Tel Aviv, Israel, Angel Tears is the joint project of Momi Ochion
and Sebastian James Taylor. Ochion, whose roots lie in Israeli pop and world
fusion music, is the melody man of the duothe brain behind the compositional
aspects and a lot of the studio work. Taylor, who composes and performs much
of the music, hails from London and is known for his work with the electronic
groups Kaya Project, Shakta and Digitalis.
Rhythyms range from electronic beats to the earthy thump of the Bedouin
dharbouka and other indigenous drums. Asian and Middle Eastern vocals lend a
spiritual quality to the music, and instrumentation includes Tibetan flutes,
Indian sitar, Arabian violin, Middle Eastern horns, grand piano and electric
guitar all sharing the same space. Mellow synthesizers swirl amidst the
elements, bringing everything together into a cohesive package.
The groups music is found on many global fusion compilations, including Buddha
Bar 2, SupperClub, and Lotus Lounge. Their songs are also heard on popular TV
shows including Sex in the City, Third Watch and The West Wing. Perfect for
everything from yoga to fitness to lounging on the couch.
