Haunting, impassioned, and jazzy, Chana Shavelson's second album of Israeli and Jewish classics brings you to a new world of Hebrew folk. The land and its people linger in her operatic sound. Her voice is unforgettable.
 
 Ahavti takes a new look at Israel's old songs, adding rock and jazz beats and vocal scat to traditional folk tunes like Naomi Shemer's "Leyl Emesh" and "Churshat HaEkalyptus." Noa's "Mishaela" becomes an interesting rock-Yemenite mix; Hannah Senesh's iconic "Keyli, Keyli" is done with jazz piano; and a heavy bass part is added to the haunting Holocaust lullaby "Dremlen Feygl" (Drowsing Birds). Anyone who knows these old songs will be enchanted by their new accessibility.
 
Chana Shavelson received her vocal training from Elizabeth Coss, a former principal artist with the Metropolitan Opera; Mark Aliapoulios, at the Boston University School for the Arts; and Miriam Meltzer, at the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of Music. Chana has attended the Tanglewood Institute and appeared in operas and musicals in the Boston area. She has given six concerts of Yiddish and Israeli music, and made two albums, Zing! and Ahavti.
