Intimate Performance with Shai Tsabari
November 30, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Shai Tsabari is a leading voice in the Indie-Levant wave in Israel. Born to a Yemenite family in the suburbs of Tel-Aviv, the music of Jewish prayers he heard in the local synagogue as a child never made it to the mainstream media. As Israel opened up to the diversity of cultures and identities of its people, Tsabari’s powerful and uplifting music brings to the forefront the chanting tradition that has been marginalized.
In this virtual event, moderated by Dr. Anat Balint, Shai Tsabari will share his story of finding a way to infuse contemporary Israeli music with the hymns of his childhood, collaborating with leading musicians (Idan Raichel, Berry Sakharof) and using music to create a new, hybrid Jewish and Israeli identity.
Free and open to the public.
