Wisaal is a Mediterranean fusion group based in Lansing, MI. The Arabic word wisaal means links, connections, or unities. This reflects an attempt to fuse elements of the Mediterrenean musical heritage with klezmer, Indian, and American influences. Formed in 2010, Wisaal has continuously developed and refined their music while performing throughout the United States. Their performances have captivated audiences at diverse venues, including the Lotus Festival (Bloomington, IN), Concert of Colors (Detroit, MI), and Global Rhythms (Miami University, OH). Their music has been described as “both engaging and complex, a lively, deeply spiritual tapestry of interwoven influences and melodies, times and cultures.”
