CARA 1998 Award Runner-up for Best Folk Song ("Eretz Shiv'at Haminim") Just Plain Folks 2006 Award Nominee for Best Song ("Behold!")
Another tapestry from Vocolot of breathtakingly beautiful melodies, harmonies and dynamic percussion.
These songs are passionate, upbeat, and evocative,
and take their inspiration from sources ranging from the ancient wisdom of Isaiah to the modern poet Walt Whitman.
This is music with universal heart, Jewish soul and social conscience.
Includes the passionate anti-war "Lo’ Yisà’ Goy,"
the sensuous, evocative "Sham‘àh VaTismach Tsiyon",
and the award-winning "Eretz Shivat Haminim".
My deepest thanks are reserved for Fran Avni for her incredible artistry
and her ever-sustaining, unflagging support,
and to my children Talia and Lev, who keep my heart open and allow me the time to do this work.
