Moshe “Moussa” Berlin is the foremost representative of the klezmer tradition in the Land of Israel. At the age of 70, he will be appearing in the United States for the first time in his career. Moussa has played for all sectors of Israeli society since the 1960s: Hasidim, Lithuanian ultra-orthodox, National Religious, Jews of the Mizrachi (“Oriental”) communities, and Shas (Sephardi ultra-orthodox). He has represented Israel in concerts and at festivals in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France, Poland and Russia, and has produced numerous recordings.

Etti Ankri has been one of Israel’s leading singer-songwriters and actresses since 1990, when her debut CD, “I Can See In Your Eyes,” went double platinum. Since then, she has released six other albums. As a lyricist and composer, Etti’s idiosyncratic work touches on contemporary social commentary, feminist perspectives, and religious and kabalistic imagery. After completing her studies at Rimon Music School, Etti hit popularity as a film and TV actress, starring in seven movies in Israel and the US, and in TV series.
