ESTA's first album was released in Israel by M.C.I. Records and was greeted with considerable acclaim. Following a series of performances in Paris, the album was distrubuted (from November 1992) by BUDA E.P.M. Records all over Europe.
Their second album, Mediterranean Crossroads, is a cross between a middle eastern zorna, darbuka, bouzouki, bagpipes, electric guitar, soprano sax with a rocking jazz fusion band!!!! You have never heard Dror Yikra or a Hassidic Nigun played like this before!
Home Made World
In their third album, Home Made World, Esta seems to have taken its multicultural approach to the nth degree. The 11-track album incorporates Persian, Yemenite and Iraqi motifs along with rock, jazz and blues. Their Eastern rendition of the Moody Blues' "Nights In White Satin" is, possibly, the ultimate cross-cultural fusion. Rock fans will, no doubt, also dig the band's version of U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," which features local rock megastar Rami Kleinstein
