Watch jammin' TRASK Blues Videos

In 2002 a group of musicians decided to give birth to a project they have been dreaming about for a long time. The idea was to create a band that would provide them with a chance of doing something they really love. Since then, the band has performed at the "Summer Blues Festival" in Tel Aviv, Givatayim Theater, International Women's Film Festival, Bella Shlomkins and other blues concerts and clubs.

Led by guitar player Itsik Friedman, Singer Harold Mymoni and Bass player, Constantin adelkind, Trask set on a gourney to explore the blues. Trask's dynamic stage performance showcases original songs by the band, as well as blues classics from Robert Johnson to B.B. king.

From bars to festivals, TRASK thrills their audiences with a combination of passion, energy and honesty. Their music is never a re-creation of sounds from the past, but rather an updated, vital celebration of the Blues as the soundtrack of real life.

Lately TRASK has gained some recogniston in the Israeli music industry and has been chosen to represent Israel in the upcoming International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, TN, January 2007. Over 100 bands will compete for $25,000 in cash and prizes and the title "Best Unsigned Blues Band". The event is sponsored by the Blues Foundation (www.blues.org) which serves over 100 affiliated blues organizations and thousands of members worldwide.

THE PEOPLE

Harold Mimoni - VOCALS

 At the age of 38, Harolds musical career dates way back. As the bands vocalist, his trade-mark is his unique vocal abilities which many consider, put him in a league of his own.
Harolds voice reminds people very much of voices of great musical legends such as Bob Dylan, and his total lack of any accent makes it hard for people to believe his familiy originaly came from Maroko.

Itsik Friedman - GUITAR & VOCALS

Itsik (37) picked up his first guitar at the age of 10. It was not long before he started learning solos from guitar heros like Jimmy Page, Eddy Van-Halen, Gary Moore and others.Studying in Rimon Musical Institute and working in verious productions over the years, Itsik never neglected his dream to create a band that will be on a totally differant level - TRASK.
Itsik is the musical director of the band, and his rich and warm guitar sound, along with Harold's unique voice are rapidly becoming the bands trademark.

Kostya, ko founder of the band, is the bands administrator and takes care of all the "behind the scene" stuff. He is basically the back-bone of the band.

Yair Ben-Simon - DRUMS
