Dekel Bor

Dekel Bor wields jazz with classical music, electronics and classic rock into truly unique vision of what life in the 21st century sounds like. Dekel’s once-in-a-life-time story translates into music in the simplest way - passion for life.

In June 2020 Dekel joins today’s genre-defining artists, and long-time friends Snarky Puppy, Aaron Parks, Logan Richardson & Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah with his Ropeadope Records debut, produced by Grammy award winning producer, Robert Sadin (Sting, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter) - Dekel’s longtime mentor.
