The album was beautifully mastered, and my sights were set on the upcoming move to Los-Angeles.
I had not yet decided if I wish to have a launch performance, but I believed I might regret leaving Israel without formally acknowledging the end of this long process.
I had reached out to my friends, Inbal-Rotem Sagiv, Yotam Ronen, Itay Haruvi and Inbal Kim Nahir - and they all responded with a resounding yes!
Inbal-Rotem Sagiv was releasing her own album at the same time, and a shared performance seemed to fit perfectly in both our plans... we chose the beautiful Tzavta theater in Tel-Aviv for it!
In order to do it right, I knew I needed Yotam Ronen on stage with me.
Perfectly recreating his Celtic whistle solos from the album, with true showmanship and energy!
Inbal-Kim Nahir decorated the stage, designed the poster and gave the whole evening her own, beautiful stylistic touch!
It absolutely would not have been the same without Itay Haruvi at the mixer, once again his calm and professional approach frees me of worry, allowing me to be at my best!
I am also grateful to Emperial Visuals' Infy Snow and Daniel D'Ardens for their support,
and a wonderful video documentation of the evening:
As always, thanks for listening! :)
