A Multi-Cultural Musical Feast Tel Aviv Museum of Art
Bat ella joins us once again and this time with Guy Mintus, the celebrated Israeli composer-pianist, to bring us an exciting multi-cultural orchestral fantasy. This promises to be a remarkable evening as Bat ella's Israeli soul music is fused with Guy's piano and imagination, energized by the unique sounds of Symphonette Raanana. What a treat!
Bat ella – an Israeli soul singer, a graduate of the IDF Performing Art Troupe "L'hakat Pikud Darom", grew up in Dimona to parents of Aleppo and Persian origins. Bat Ella has made it her mission to pursue the value of "Kiruv Levavot" (bringing souls together) between Jews and Arabs, Secular and Religious Jews, and Jews in Israel and in the Diaspora. She brings this to life in her engaging concerts in Israel and abroad.
Bat ella's songs have melodies and arrangements that express the rich musical tapestry of the Israeli melting pot. The powerful lyrics of her songs, the catchy melodies, the rich arrangements and her moving performance, produce a concert which is entirely Israeli soul music – a musical experience which generates inspiration, elation, and joy.
Bat ella has to her credit three solo albums: “T’filati” (2010), “L’chi Lach”(2015) – musical production and arrangements by Amos Ben-David and "R'gaim" (2018) – by Ariel Keshet.
Guy Mintus is an award winning pianist, composer & vocalist based between New York and Tel Aviv. Guy is equally at home whether he’s sharing the stage with jazz legends, composing for classical orchestras, collaborating with masters of traditional music or educating the young generation through his unique musical workshops. A recently endorsed Yamaha Artist, Guy is the recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award. His latest trio album, Connecting the Dots, has been recommended by the New York Times and the prestigious DownBeat Magazine.
