Zehava Ben

About artist / group: 

27 year old vocalist Zehava Ben is Israeli of Moroccan heritage, brought up in a poor neighborhood in the southern city of Beersheba. Her humble origins and petite build mask an extraordinary talent. With her mesmerizing voice she sings songs from the repertory of the Maria Callas of the Arab world, the legendary diva Umm Kalthoum.
Accompanied by the Haifa Arab Music Orchestra conducted by Suheil Raduan, she wins over even the most fanatic Umm Kalthoum fans with her interpretations of such classic and complex songs as El-atlall and Inta Oumri.
Enthusiasm for Ben's program is spreading quickly and she and the orchestra have been invited to a number of festivals in Europe including Stockholm, Montpellier, and Paris (Theatre de la Ville). Last year she was THE major attraction, and got a standing ovation, at the international world renown world-music Sfinks Festival in Boechout.
An absolute must for all lovers of classic music, of Middle-Eastern music, of Arab music, of music.
