In July 2013 Asaf Sirkis will be releasing his latest Trio album, ‘Shepherd’s Stories’ with his long standing collaborators, Greek guitarist Tassos Spiliotopoulos and Israeli bassist Yaron Stavi having previously worked with them on ‘Letting Go’ (2010) and ‘The Monk’ (2008).



Shepherd’s Stories is created as a result of Asaf’s fascination with the way melodies affect our soul and how music can connect us with our true selves. He calls these effects the Shepherd Story effect, when a melody reminds you of something you’ve heard before, a sense of ‘I know this tune from somewhere’ but cannot be pinpointed from where. It’s a similar feeling to déjà vu’ or when you’re listening to some music and it reminds you of the way you felt in other times in your life. The difference here is that ‘Shepherd’s Stories’ connects you with something larger then yourself, a forgotten truth or collective consciousness. These moments are a moment of connection to our soul; they are important pointers or reminders of where we have come from.



Asaf says of creating and recording this album: “I think that there is much greater sense of deliberateness in this album when you compare to the previous albums we’ve made with the trio but at the same time a more effortless, natural and improvisatory approach throughout”.


“There was something very ‘right’ for me about making this album and the process of making it was very easy and natural. This is partly due to the fact that the Trio has been together since 2007 and has developed a sound of its own through the sheer irreplaceable mileage of playing together in many situations.



“The other exciting thing for me about making this album is that it represents a coming together of a lot of things I’ve learnt and practised as a musician and as a human being. Over the last few years I’ve been studying the art of South Indian vocal percussion system called Konnakol. This has had a revolutionary effect on my playing and on my understanding of rhythm. I have used a few Indian elements in this album.
