THE 9TH HULLEGEB ISRAELI-ETHIOPIAN ARTS FESTIVAL
Tamar Rada, soloist of the Tamarada ensemble, is emerging as the coming promise of Israeli music. Rada has already released the first album by her ensemble and has appeared on numerous stages collaborating with, hosting and as a guest of various artists including her cousin Ester Rada, Ehud Banai and Ariel Horowitz, who is also her artistic director.
The performance Tamarada presents Rada’s optimistic songs, filled with deep emotion, simplicity and truth. These are Israeli folk songs filled with Caribbean rhythms and African colors and fragrances, offering a natural combination of her musical roots from home, with energetic contemporary groove. The name of the performance is a quote from a poem by Yona Wallach, “The Life You Have.”
