Victoria Hanna in Aleph-Bet: A Melave Malke Concert

Saturday, February 29, 2020 4 Adar 5780

8:00 PM - 11:00 PM

Join us for a participatory experiential concert with Victoria Hanna and Gershon Waiserfirer.

One of the most interesting Vocal phenomena of the year hails from Israel: the music of Victoria Hanna combines Jewish mysticism, Dada, surrealism and spiky feminism. The unique vocal artist bends her voice in never-before-heard shapes and finds inspiration for her songs in Kabbala. Hanna is part of a continuum of strong and edgy visionaries, like her idols Laurie Anderson and Björk.

A rabbi’s daughter, Hanna grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family in Jerusalem. The home was full of books, from which Hanna absorbed words and letters. As a child, she stuttered, but finally turned the problem into an opportunity and harnessed it as part of her expression. Song is her healing power and language her tool for creation. She utilizes the tones of Hebrew and Aramaic to their fullest potential.

Hanna will perform with multi-instrumentalist and composer Gershon Waiserfirer, a native of Tajikistan. He is embedded in the Israeli music scene in almost every genre from traditional Jewish Music to free improvised music, and regularly composes music for movies and theatre.

Victoria Hanna is the freshest, edgiest, weirdest artist on the Israeli airwaves today. How did she reach that status? By singing — the alphabet!” (NPR Music)
 
"The purity of her voice is simply breathtaking" (Songlines Magazine)


Hanna is blessed with one of those voices that demands full attention, holding audiences rapt with her acrobatic voice and leaving mouths agape."(Time Out New York)
