Considered one of Israel’s singing treasures, Gitit Shoval shares her talents and inspiration through musical storytelling. Singing songs from Jewish musicians and composers from around the world, Shoval regales her audience with fascinating anecdotes about them. Her stories offer insights into the lives of the Jewish talent that contributed to contemporary popular music, including Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Carole King, and George Gershwin.
