Israeli Music Today
Opening Act: The ShinShinim
This special night of Hebrew songs begins with The Shinshinim performing favourite hits from Israel’s pop artists of today. Idan Raichel and Rita, Arik Berman and Keren Peles are only some of the contemporary singers whose music is shared in this uplifting hour with our talented Shinshinim.
The main show features internationally recognized performer Evan Malach, celebrating the release of his newest album When All is One, his first double language CD. With his souldful and passionate delivery and a band of world class musicians (Rich Grossman, electric guitar; Tyler Emond, bass; jeremy Kleynhans, drums), Evan has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and several other rock-driven heartfelt singer songwriters. This much anticipated special Hebrew performance is not to be missed!
Sarah Shetrit, Noa Betzalel, Sagi Alon and Noa Voss are four of this year’s UJA Toronto ShinShinim, young Israeli emissaries selected for a year of service in Toronto’s Jewish community. All four have musical backgrounds, either professional training or experience performing in Israeli youth groups.
Actor, musician, singer and songwriter Evan Malach has performed around the world and was the 1st place winner of Israel’s Hallelujah Global Jewish Singing Contest. A graduate of McGill University with a Concentration in Music, Evan also completed a two-year acting program at New York City’s esteemed Neighborhood Playhouse. He has written two musicals, including A Simple Twist of Faith which debuted as a reading at JMW 2014, and is currently developing a third show using reggae music to tell the story of The Balfour Declaration. When All is One is his third full length.
