To singer, songwriter, composer and bandleader Efrat Alony, all categories are by far too small: Alony set herself apart from other artists by crossing boundaries and walking the tightrope. “I love challenges” she declares, “to learn from them and to reach my limits. Because limits are not rigid and solid, but moveable.” With her new project, she fathoms the deepest depths of her voice; everything in the music seems to be in movement. In a trio with her two accompanying musicians Oliver Leicht (clarinet) and Frank Wingold (guitar) she opens up new experimental dimensions with components of electro, rock, pop and jazz music. The singer is going to present her own works and jazz classics such as ‘If I Should Lose You’ or ‘Lonely Woman’ in English and Hebrew – sometimes playful, sometimes with a clear message.
‘A Kit for Mending Thoughts’. “Emotional collages set to music” and “little audio movies”, from playful purring to massive and dark sounds
