Omri Mor, born in Be’er Sheva, Israel, started to play the piano at the age of seven, and since has been exploring a variety of music genres.
He studied classical music at “Robin Academy” in Jerusalem and the foundations of Andalusian music (from Algiers) under the guidance of Nino Bitton. Mor simultaneously worked on his Jazz and Classics skills. His first inspiration and role-model was Oscar Peterson.
The list of musicians Mor worked with is the perfect emobiment of a wide musical range; he played with Jazz artists like Arnie Lawrence (which introduced him to the world of Jazz), Avishai Cohen and Stefano Bollani; rock stars like Berry Sakharof and Micha Shitrit; the Algirien pianist Morris Al Medioni; The Nino Biton’s Maghreby Orchestra; the Israeli Andalusian orchestra, with lyricists rabbi Haim Louk and Lior Elmaliah; Israel’s Philharmonic Orchestra and Ra'anana Symphonette.
