In this performance you will find a meeting of polar opposites between West and East. Rali Margalit is grounded in the West, and from here comes the recognizable influence of classical music and the Kibbutz movement, which stands in opposition to the traditions of her roots. The East receives rich and amazing expression through the vocalist and kanun player Eldad Gabay, son of a family of hymn composers, and a great artist in his own right. Alongside them appears one of Israel’s leading flutists, Hagit Rosmarin, and the international percussionist Oren Fried.
