2009 Oyhoo Music FestivalArmed with a sublime voice and an ear for mixing and matching musical styles, singer, songwriter Anath produces music that can speak to a universal audience. Born to Tunisian parents, and raised in Tel-Aviv and Paris, Anath is now a New Yorker by choice. She writes and sings in English, French and Hebrew. “It took me a long time to understand that I don’t belong to any one place. I belong to every place,” she says. With her latest CD, the introspective and personal Dark Lullaby, she navigates the themes of love, loneliness and longing, and shifts to an entirely new and intimate sound. Recorded in Chile and New York with her husband, pianist, composer and producer Pablo Vergara, the CD recalls the sounds of some of Anath’s influences, from the psychedelia of Mazzy Star to the noir rock of Elysian Fields, and the feminist punk of PJ Harvey.
