Amir Perelman was born in Israel in 1967 and as a young child immigrated to the United States with his family. Some years later he returned to Israel and at the age of 15 began playing the guitar. In short time his talent and virtuosity were revealed. In his early twenties, Amir re-located to Europe where as an active musician, performed at jazz festivals and became a familiar face in many of Europe’s jazz clubs.

Already a respected musician, he taught music at the Rotterdam Conservatory, composed scores for theatre, and commercial television both in Europe and Israel. During his formative years, Amir was exposed to a wide range of genres and musical styles which lead him to bind close working partnerships with some of the great masters of India, Armenia and Perssia.

Amir Perelman’s style and virtuosity have brought him to set up ensembles ranging from world music genres to Jazz. Their uniqueness and exceptional quality of sound have found their way to labels distributed both in Europe and Israel by Magda music. After ten years of extensive musical activity in Europe, Amir returned to Israel in 2003. Since then, he has been playing and leading ensembles in Israel while teaching at the Megiddo School of Music.
