​"the young pianist treats his influences with the utmost respect without wearing them on his sleeve"

Joshua Lee, Presto Music

The young pianist and composer Nadav Berkovits is a new and unique voice in the Israeli Jazz scene.

His music is a delicate collage of Middle East, Cuba and spiritual jazz.

With roots in a musical home, where he was exposed from an early age to a variety of styles, already as a young artist he absorbed influences and preferences that echo in his music to this day.

After Graduating from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance he embarked on a journey of several months

to Cuba, where he was exposed to the depths of the local music and culture.

There he also began to compose selections that would become his debut album, Waking the Heart, which was released in 2021 under the London based label Ubuntu Music.

About a year later he recorded 'Cycle & Line', a solo piano album that included interpretations of new and old works.

In his music, Nadav is exploring the combination of all these influences and creates a fresh, colorful fusion of sounds which takes the listener on a journey.

At age 28, Nadav has already gained experience as a pianist, bandleader and performer with different groups in Israel's finest venues and abroad  (Marseille Jazz des cinq continents Festival , Red Sea Jazz Festival, Jerusalem Jazz Festival and more).

Nadav is also a part of the Psychedelic Jazz Quartet Dialgo.
