"by Allah, I long to escape the prison of my ego, and loose myself in the mountains of the desert"
My living surrounding," Israel" to some," Palestine" to others, is rich in human texture, politically harsh, and hold a beautiful potential of a dialogue between east and west. My neighbors are Jews and Muslims, Arabs and European, Israelis and Palestinians. I pray that this musical offering will be a part of a bridge between us all. I pray that we shall bring this music of the heart to all east and west people. May peace abide in us.
I wish to deeply thank the amazing musicians whom I worked with : Idan, Avi and Eyal, who brought all their wisdom and heart into it. I love you.
to my mom, Smadar, who helped financing the project, to Talia Kadishson,my cousin, a wonderful Canadian musician who inspired me to come back to music, and to Shimi Cohen, my angel therapist and healer.
