Raz Mesinai (born 1973) is a producer, musician and composer born in Jerusalem and raised and based out of New York City. His mother is Susan Mesinai and his grandfather is Manuel Bromberg. Mesinai began experimenting with cassettes and sampling at the age of 10, and at 14, was discovered by musician Juma Sultan while creating music for breakdancers on the streets of New York City. Juma gave him a Multi-Vox Tape Echo machine and a ribbon microphone to produce his early work.
Raz Mesinai's Badawi – Unit Of Resistance. Label: ROIR (Reachout International Records) – RUSCD 8307.
The album was inspired by Mesinai 's unhappiness of George W. Bush being re-elected for a second term, but his discontent peaked when the Republican National Convention visited New York's Madison Square Garden in 2004. Instead of joining protesters in the street who felt the same way, Mesinai tried a different tactic - he booked a recording studio that was only a few blocks from MSG, invited some of the "most powerful musicians" Mesinai had played with over the years, recorded for ten hours, and voilà, Unit of Resistance.
Raz Mesinai in his first outing using both of his monikers (Badawi & Raz Mesinai) has created a politically charged masterpiece. released October 23, 2007. 2007, Reachout International Records, Inc. license.
