Arli is currently preparing an ambitious new score and soundscape for AC37, with the racing commencing in Barcelona in 2024. Meanwhile, the feature film Song For Maria is currently in post-production. Arli’s signature sound can be heard at the Auckland Art Gallery in the filmic exhibition Te Mata, a collaboration with renowned choreographer Taane Mete as well as the opening titles of the FIFA Women's World Cup and The All Blacks Experience at SkyCity.
2023 Arli continues his work as a solo artist, completing the final polish on the upcoming release of his fifth solo album with Big Pop Records in addition to creating a new collaborative album with renowned Kiwi composer Rhian Shian.
Internationally, Arli performs at MoMA New York, regularly produces music in Canada, and has played at the Montreux Jazz Festival, among other international festivals. The album I Muri Ahiahi of Ngatapa Black, produced by Arli, was nominated for Māori Album of the Year at the Aotearoa Music Awards.
Born in Israel, Arli was a key member of Whiteflag Project - one of the first Palestinian and Israeli crossover bands. At this time, Arli’s mentor, Platinum-selling English record producer Mark Smulian, urged him to “find the back door of the electric guitar sound.” This marked the beginning of Arli’s journey in developing his now-familiar sonic identity, which seamlessly lends itself to the world of cinema.www.arlimusic.com
