Yoseph Nigun by Achiya Asher Cohen Alloro - Music Video

The musician Achiya Asher Cohen Alloro recently came out with his first single; "Yoseph tune" 

The piece was composed by Achiya in memory of the musicin and guitarist "Yossi Piamenta". The day after Piamenta's funeral Achiya sat down by the piano remembering Yoseph, when  his feelings transformed into a melody. This piece was released one year exactly after Piamenta's death, on Het Elul.

The relationship between Achiya and Yossi began when Achiya was a child. Yoseph and Achiya's father- Ariel Cohen Alloro keyboardist, were roommates, and often played together. After the army they moved to New York and preformed together with the "Piamenta" band. Later when Yoseph came to Israel an instant chemistry began between Achiya and Piamenta , and Achiya began to join him on stage as a pianist in his major performances in which among others  hosted the guitarist Isaac Klepter (Kaveret), Efraim Shamir, and others.

Yoseph passed away from Lung cancer at the age of 64 on Het Elul 08/23/15.
