Genre : Acoustic


Rona Kenan is a singer-song-writer and guitarist whose dark velvety voice, biting lyrics and striking presence have set the bar on what it means to be a female performer in Israel.
 
She made her debut as a song-writer and performer at the age of 18, when she collaborated with musician Eran Tzur on a tribute album to poetess Yona Vollach. Two years later, she formed her first band and began performing in Tel-Aviv, where her hybrid mesh of old Russian folk and luminous Israeli poetry, cabaret sound and soulful performance drew a rapidly expanding cult following.
 
In 2004 she released her debut album: "Breathing down to Zero", hailed by critics as the best Hebrew album of the year. (quote) The album was produced by legendary Israeli producer/musician Izhar Ashdot, with whom she began collaborating some years earlier and under whose tutelage she remained since. She became the first artist to be signed onto his label: "Izhar-Ashdot Music."
 
Throughout the years she took part in numerous musical and literary projects and wrote music for film and theater, including the award winning documentary "The Cemetery Club." More...
 
"Through Foreign Eyes, Rona Kenan's second album, is so beautiful it virtually shouts, in her reserved manner, "Here, I've arrived." This is not just another station along the way to the exclusive club of female artists such as Yehudit Ravitz and Korin Allal. This is the stop that delivers her straight into the club."
Ben Shalev, Haaretz, Mar. 11, 2007
