Itzhak Ventura was schooled in the traditions of Piyyut by his grandfather, starting at a very young age. In traveling the world he discovered the reed flute- the Ney, and began studying the roots of its music while delving into Sufi musical traditions. Ventura studied with masters both in Israel and abroad and specializes in the Arabic, Turkish, and Persian styles of the Ney flute.

Currently, Ventura collaborates and performs with various artists and ensembles, including: The Mediterranean Andalusian Orchestra, The Libyans, Orphaned Land, Diwan Saz, Berry Sakharof, Yehuda Poliker, Knesiat Hasekhel, David Broza, Dudu Tassa, Rechela, Yasmin Levi, and Shlomi Saranga.
