MORE ABOUT CHANA ROTHMAN:
Chana's music, using two languages and ancient texts to address social ills and joys of today, brings a universal appeal. The message is unity through music. Two years as a Head Songleader in Reform Judaism's teen leadership summer camps helped Chana develop a passion for music as a tool to bring communities together.
RICHARD ANTONE of ELMORE MAGAZINE writes: "Rothman's music bubbles with a conscious vibe that's capable of bringing people together. She is adept at using religious imagery and bilingual lyrics as a bridge rather than a wedge."
Chana's debut album, "We Can Rise," (Oyhoo Records) produced by C Lanzbom, was voted "Best Album of 2007" by jewschool.com and she was featured in "Top 5 Women Who Rock" by American Jewish Life and Lilith Magazine. Chana was also featured in the documentary film "Jewish Music: More Than Just Klezmer" produced by Brooklyn College Media Department.
NEW YORK TIMES says of Chana Rothman:"Worth Checking Out"
