An intimate set of lullabies for all ages by Improvisers / Composers Ayelet Rose Gottlieb (voice) and Anat Fort (piano). Sung mostly in Hebrew, Ayelet and Anat draw inspiration from classic Hebrew children’s poetry, such as Fania Bergstein’s “Restful Night” and H. N. Bialik’s “The Flower to the Butterfly”. A lush album of night-music, there are several moments of piano solo, and a piece arranged for voice with effects. Though not at all a political album, “Two More Dreams” carries a message of peace: Ayelet composed Samih Al Qasim’s poem “Star”, translated to Hebrew from Arabic by Sasson Somekh. Arabic and Ladino are also heard
Though not at all a political album, “Two More Dreams” carries a message of peace: Ayelet composed Palestinian poet Samih Al Qasim’s poem “Star”, translated to Hebrew from Arabic by Sasson Somekh. In the song “Ya Eyni”, Ayelet sings in Ladino, Arabic and Hebrew, using phrases she recalls hearing as a child from her Maternal grandparents. Gottlieb and Fort want to bring these languages as well as Palestinian poetry into the Jewish-Israeli environment in a natural way, enhancing the cross-cultural fertilization that they hope to develop and grow.
In November 2017, the two will celebrate the release of “Two More Dreams” with a tour of Israel. Following that, Ayelet and Anat hope to bring this music to audiences around the world.
Enjoy this peaceful journey into the dream
