YouTuber Yarden Saxophone did a mesmerizing sax jam over deep house music on her channel, injecting the piece with a whole lot of soul. Yarden is a DJ, producer and musician, and her sax solo over the piece has a hypnotic quality, which a great many listeners appreciated as the video clocked up 5.8 million views.
The performance is the most popular video on Yarden Saxophone’s channel and it’s no surprise why, with comments like “that feels like it’s touching my soul deep inside”. The backing track has a chilled-out, uplifting sound which she perfectly complements with her tasteful playing.
Yarden Saxophone is from Israel and she is known for her unique combination of improvised saxophone performances and house music productions, which have made a splash in the electronic music scene. This has led to invitations to perform in the United States, Asia and right across the European continent.
She has a real knack for creating compelling visuals in her videos as well, as can be seen in her second most popular video, which features a sunset jam in Saint-Tropez, France. Yarden dances and performs in the video alongside DJ Grace Williams over a breathtaking vista showing the beauty of the seaside resort. Check out the video below.
Yarden is 29 years old and is based in Tel Aviv. The alto saxophonist told Jewish Insider she picked up the instrument at age 8, despite it being considered “pretty masculine”. She was quickly hooked though, saying that “it was pretty much love at first sight.” She subsequently forged her own path on the instrument, playing pop and electronic music rather than the traditional purview of saxophonists, such as jazz, classical and blues.
Yarden has been making some real waves in her homeland, having been featured in the 2021 Forbes 30 Under 30 list. She’s also made her name in the international electronic music scene, having opened shows for artists such as The Chainsmokers, DJ Marshmello, Sean Paul, Flo Rida, Afrojack, Korolova and Nervo.
