Born in Jerusalem to parents of Moroccan, Iraqi, Argentinian, and Eastern European descent, raised between Buenos-Aires and Tel-Aviv, and based out of Brooklyn since 2011, Or Bareket is one of the most prominent bassists of his generation, as well as a composer and bandleader with an eclectic yet meticulously cohesive style.

Winner of the 2011 International Society of Bassists’ jazz competition, Bareket’s distinct lyricism, rhythmic dexterity, and groove-centric approach are clearly present in his playing and writing alike.

Growing up trilingual, Bareket is fascinated by how different languages and cultures intersect and diverge. Musical Practice and composition in particular are Bareket’s method of investigating spaces between and within languages, discovering, reclaiming, and weaving the different worlds lost through immigration and the worlds he currently inhabits into a personal aesthetic that attempts to include and honor all of them: his ancestral North African, Iraqi, and Latin-American folklores, his life-long study of Black American music, and his experiences making music with some of today’s foremost artists across a wide range of musical generations and stylistic orientations; Bareket has worked extensively with bands led by the likes of Joel Ross, Etienne Charles, Camila Meza, and Ari Hoenig, and has performed with artists such as Joshua Redman, Chris Potter, Ben Wendel, Leon Parker, José James, Godwin Louis, Marquis Hill, Aaron Parks, Hamilton de Holanda, James Francies, Sam Yahel, Marta Sanchez, Aaron Goldberg, Savannah Harris, Chico Pinhero, Fred Nardin, and Sullivan Fortner in different settings.

The Or Bareket Quartet features some of today’s foremost talents on their respective instruments: alto saxophonist Godwin Louis, pianist Jeremy Corren, and drummer Savannah Harris. Bareket’s third album, “SAHAR”, was released in 2022 on Enja Records and saw the quartet tour across the EU, US, and Japan. The group’s next album, produced by Joel Ross, is set for release in late 2024.
