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.
