Liron Meyuhas is a percussion artist, ensemble leader, singer, a teacher and creator. A nomad with roots in the alleys of Jerusalem, Meyuhas has studied rhythm in Africa, Jazz in Italy and Arabic drumming in the Sinai. Israel’s first female Pantam artist, she has performed in the US, Brasil, Czech Republic, Russia and throughout Europe.
In honor of her new album “La Gitana” (The Gypsy in Italian), followed by a tour of Italy, she is returning to Europe and Israel with an explosive show of harmony, rhythm and transcendence.
From intimate solo shows to a full band experience, the Gypsy will find her way to the ears, hips and hearts.
Autumn has arrived, the caravan is moving and La Gitana is on the road again. Let us gather.
“La Gitana brings us back to times when we wanted to disconnect from the harsh reality to sounds of world music and believe, through the beauty of the sounds and the universality of the lyrics, that we live in a graceful reality - where love and peace will prevail, because surely, there is no other way. Meyuhas’ album gives us an opportunity to devote ourselves to beauty, to rhythm, to grace…”

Interview with Channel I24 - French
Global Music Network Interview
“Jerusalem-born Liron Meyuhas is a true natural talent when it comes to music. She not only has a perfect mastery of a virtually endless list of percussion instruments, but she is also a singer and songwriter in numerous musical projects that are spread out around the globe. A true world musician, so to say. Global Music Network spoke with her about her musical career, how she first came into contact with Arabic music, and why she calls herself “La Gitana”

The Jerusalem Post - Oud Festival Article
“Naturally, when it comes to crossing over and blending energies and cultural baggage, Jewish-Arab fusions catch the ear and eye. One such confluence will take place tomorrow evening (8 p.m.) at Confederation House when Christian Arab oud player Helen Sebilleh joins forces with 30-year-old Israeli percussionist Liron Meyuhas for the Song of the Oud concert.”
