Workshop with Rona Kenan, London, UK, Jul 8, 2008

Workshop with Rona Kenan
Tuesday 8th July, 6pm to 8pm
(Followed by Jam until 9pm)

Singing-songwriting workshop with Israel's new female leading artist whose dark velvety voice, biting lyrics and striking presence have set the bar.

By the young age of 18, Rona Kenan was already heralded as a "discovery," with promising talent as a musician, singer and songwriter. Her first public appearance attracted much attention, when she performed two original songs for Eran Tzur's program and album, in memory of the poetess Yona Wollach. Since then, she has composed for and performed in numerous and varied projects.

In 2004, she released her long-anticipated debut album, "Breathing Down to Zero," produced by leading Israeli producer Izhar Ashdot, with 11 original tracks in both Hebrew and English. She has also written the music for a number of Israeli films and television series. In February 2007, Rona released her second album: "Through Foreign Eyes". The disk presents ten songs, all composed and written by her.

That album, produced by Steve Miller, was called Away From Home. In 1995, while promoting Stonedoors, the singer had the opportunity to open for Sting, even playing a song along with him. In 1996, Broza returned to his roots, recording a Hebrew album called Big Secrets in Tel-Aviv.

He is the only Broadway performer to receive a Broadway contract allowing him to observe the Jewish Sabbath by not performing on Friday evenings and Saturday matinees, a recognition of his talent and dedication to the role and a constant source of pride and accomplishment in his career.

Fisher'€™s Fall 2009 North American Tour is a celebration of the PBS television special that capitalizes on his incredible vocal and artistic range and features a repertoire that goes well beyond the television show. It tells the story of a cantor who finds success on the stages of Broadway, but who never forgets his home or the musical landscape of Israel. The tour concludes with shows in Toronto on November 5 and in Baltimore on November 7.

Achinoam NiniAchinoam Nini (NOA) - Special Intimate Show at City Winery
Monday, January 10, 8:00pm
City Winery
155 Varick St
New York, NY

Known in Israel by her given name Achinoam Nini, Noa is Israel's leading international concert and recording artist. Born in Tel- Aviv in 1969, Noa lived in NYC from age 2 until her return to Israel alone at the age of 17. Her family is originally from Yemen. After serving the mandatory two years in the Israeli Army in a military entertainment unit, Noa studied music at the Rimon School where she met her long-time partner and collaborator Gil Dor.

Noa's strongest influences come from the singer-songwriters of the 60s, like Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen. These musical and lyrical sensibilities, combined with Noa's Yemenite roots and Gil Dor's strong background in Jazz, Classical and Rock, have created Noa and Gil's unique sound, manifested in hundreds of songs written and performed together. Noa plays percussion, guitar and piano. She is married to Dr. Asher Barak, they have two children, Ayehli and Enea, and live in Israel.

Eyal Maoz and Asaf Sirkis, London, UK, 15 Jauary 2011

Eyal Maoz (NYC, Tzadik) and Asaf Sirkis Duet - Elementary Dialogues (Ayler Records) - LIVE!
date: January 15, Saturday at 8:30 - 10 PM
fee: 5 pounds
location: Cafe Posk - London
website: host.quksdns4.net
address: JazzCafe POSK
238-246 King Street
London W6 0RF
Telephone: 44 (0)208 7411940

A rare performance in the UK: Eyal Maoz and Asaf Sirkis share a long history of collaboration. Beginning at
elementary school in their hometown of Rehovot, Israel, their friendship and musical association has continued through many years, and they have since become main stays of the creative music scenes of London (Sirkis) and New York (Maoz). A huge plethora of influences and experiences comes to creative fruition in their duo. Combining composition and improvisation, their intuitive rapport and mutual understanding guides the way through a musical conversation full of unexpected twists and turns and sudden bursts of colour and energy, yet never losing its emotional depth and logical coherence. The Maoz-Sirkis duet brings straight-up experimentation to the traditional concept of jazz, blending both composed and improvised music to create an interesting and inventive whole.

style, guitar-drums format." -Glenn Astarita , All About

3 Cohens and Gilad Hekselman Trio
Sunday, April 29, 7:00 pm

The 3 Cohens are a trio of siblings from Tel Aviv, Israel – tenor saxophonist/clarinetist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Avishai Cohen and soprano saxophonist Yuval Cohen – whose sense of improvisational interplay is both uncannily fluent and wonderfully, infectiously warm. 3 Cohens will be backed by a rhythm section featuring Pianist Yonatan Avishai, bassist Omer Avital, and drummer Obed Calvaire.

Gilad Hekselman Trio, featuring bassist Joe Martin and drummer Obed Calvaire and will present the opening set in this incredible night of Israeli Jazz.
Gilad Hekselman is a remarkable young guitarist who “has set himself roughly in the line of Pat Metheny and Kurt Rosenwinkle with a warm and clear guitar tone, clear articulation, crazily extended improvisational ideas, speed when he needs, an advanced understanding of harmony and the flexibility to go wherever his bands want…”

Warm, richly textured, and wholly heartfelt, HaTaklitim is the hot new caramel dessert of classic Israeli cover music of the 70's, 80's, and 90's.

Led by the sensitive and talented Moshe Bonen, HaTaklitim transports the audience to simpler times, before spotify and wifi, when music was played on a hi-fi stereo and the songs told real stories. Moshe opens his heart, and his vast knowledge base from his Galatz and Galgalatz radio days, and each show comes to life with anecdotes, fun Hebrew music trivia, and of course superb sound.

HaTaklitim features a talented group of Israeli musicians: Ziv Shalev on Guitar, Ofer Levy on Drums, David Segal on Bass, Shy Florence on keyboard, and Mika Hary's beautiful vocals.

Monshe Bonen, City Winery Brunch, NYC, 21 July 2013

Every Sunday Morning, combining live music and food in a fresh, cultural environment, City Winery's Klezmer brunch series pairs some of the greatest musicians in the world with delicious lox, bagels and other tasty fare on Sunday mornings from 11am to 2pm. City Winery's brunch on July 21, 2013 features Moshe Bonen & HaTaklitim.

General Admission: $10 / Children Under 13 - Free
City Winery
155 Varick Street
New York, New York 10013
(212) 608-0555

Warm, richly textured, and wholly heartfelt, HaTaklitim is the hot new caramel dessert of classic Israeli cover music of the 70's, 80's, and 90's.

Led by the sensitive and talented Moshe Bonen, HaTaklitim transports the audience to simpler times, before spotify and wifi, when music was played on a hi-fi stereo and the songs told real stories. Moshe opens his heart, and his vast knowledge base from his Galatz and Galgalatz radio days, and each show comes to life with anecdotes, fun Hebrew music trivia, and of course superb sound.

HaTaklitim features a talented group of Israeli musicians: Ziv Shalev on Guitar, Ofer Levy on Drums, David Segal on Bass, Shy Florence on keyboard, and Mika Hary's beautiful vocals.

One of the most talked-about artists at the 2012 Ashkenaz Festival, Israel's Shye Ben Tzur returns to Toronto as part of a coast-to-coast North American summer tour. Having studied Indian classical music for over a decade, and immersed himself in Muslim Qawwali music, Shye Ben Tzur has fashioned a wholly unique fusion of Hebrew and Middle Eastern musical influences with those of the Indian sub-continent. Working with a cross-cultural ensemble of Rajasthani-Indian and Israeli musicians, his music transcends the seemingly quirky juxtapositions at its core: devotional Qawwali music with Hebrew poetry, Indian classical vocals with spanish guitar, funky bass with pulsating tabla. This not-to-be-missed event will be one of Toronto's top summer's concerts, featuring a colourful ensemble, deep grooves and soulful improvisation in an awe-inspiring show.

Dudu Tassa is one of Israel’s most popular rock stars. Tonight, you can hear him in an intimate club setting. Like many Israeli artists, Tassa is finding creative inspiration by exploring his musical roots; he’s researched and rejuvenated the music of his grandfather and great uncle, known as the Al-Kuwaiti brothers, who, despite their being Jewish, led one of the most popular and influential bands in Iraq and the Arab world in the early 20th century.

The Somerville Symphony Orkestar opens the show with their Slavic fun and funk.

Dudu Tassa

Austin, TX

With his band, The Kuwatis, Dudu Tassa summons the work of two Iraqi-Jewish composers, Daoud and Saleh Al Kuwaiti (who happen to also be his grandfather and his great-uncle), to create an Israeli pop-rock informed by Arabic tradition.

“It was interesting to do,” Tassa recalls. “I was ready for something new. I was bored with Israeli pop music. And this struck something in me. I asked my mom for recordings of her father and I went to Israel radio to see what they had. Honestly, it wasn’t easy to listen to them – my ears weren’t used to such sad music and the melodies were difficult.”

In the end, he listened to over 200 pieces of music by the brothers for his Al Kuwaiti project. His choices turned out to be pieces he knew.

“I connected to those songs my mother sang when I was a child. I’d listen and I knew them I picked songs that I thought I could take to the West, where I could imagine harmonies in the music.”

29th JMF Festival Pass applies

Dudu Tassa is a bona fide Israeli rock star: one of the nation’s most beloved singer/songwriters and most-called guitarists-on-demand. He has released eight albums, produced numerous others, and composed for television and cinema. In this performance, he and his band sing the songs of Tassa’s grandfather and great-uncle, Saleh and Daud Al-Kuwaiti. Performing as the Al-Kuwaiti brothers, they were two of the greatest composer-musicians in Baghdad during the first half of the 20th century and acclaimed innovators of modern Iraqi music. They’re still highly esteemed in the Arab world.

Tassa saluted them in his 2011 album “Dudu Tassa and the Al Kuwaitis,” singing their songs in Arabic and Hebrew, and integrating them with Iraqi, Middle Eastern, and Israeli rock music. The album, a top seller in Israel, also features archival materials from the Kuwaitis and singer Faiza Rushdie as well as contributions by contemporary oud master Yair Dalal. Dalal will join Tassa and his band – featuring qanun (Middle Eastern zither), violin, cello, keyboards, guitars, bass and drums – on stage at Yoshi’s San Francisco as a special guest. Concert produced with generous support from the Israel Center & the Consulate General of Israel in San Francisco

Newish Jewish festival logoNinet Tayeb was first introduced to the music scene when she was only 19 years old after winning the flagship season of the Israel’s version of “Pop Idol” in 2003. Becoming a household name overnight, Tayeb’s career grew into what many critics have hailed as a wild Cinderella story phenomena, as Ninet who was still living with her parents in the country at the time- decided to pick up her guitar and begin exploring the music scene in Tel Aviv. Ninet’s debut album was released in 2006, selling Platinum in less than 24 hours- charting no less than 5 singles that became instant number one hits on national radio through out the country. Her second album, written and produced by Ninet herself was released in 2009, again receiving overwhelming critical success. In 2012 “Sympathetic Nervous System”, Ninet’s first album in English was released in Israel receiving amazing reviews and was followed by a successful tour across Country. Not resting, Only a year later, Ninet’s 4th album saw light “All the Animals Knew”, again Ninet earning beautiful response from Radio, Media and fans. Now Days while touring for over a year with her latest album Ninet is working on her 5th and looking into an international carrier.

Yula Beeri is an Israeli, ex-punk icon, vocal powerhouse, and all around musical savant, sinking her dainty teeth into punk cabaret, infectious dance pop, poignant rock opera, and a haunting a cappella ensemble.
