Hadara Levin Ardi:
The Israeli Tom Waits and Bob Dylan, who graduated with excellence from NYU Film School, is Indie’s pioneer in Israel. Began making music at an older age, and after 12 albums and shows in Israel and abroad, she is coming with her drunk piano, juggling languages and genres with Olympian skill, articulate, and with a winning honesty, and touches on subjects of great importance, as well as minimal. She has no prearranged set list, she doesn’t remember the lyrics to her songs by heart, usually improvises, with excess soul and a bare heart. In any case, she would never give up her glass of red wine!
Khan Theatre – Saturday, May 11th, at 9 pm
