“Indelible memories can also result in enduring melodies, as is the case with Shiv’a […] the wordless undertaking is a powerful evocation of loss.״
– Alex Varty, MusicWorks Magazine
Inspired by Jewish and Buddhist traditions, Shiv’a reflects on the process of mourning. This instrumental composition by Ayelet Rose Gottlieb, is performed by a stellar group of musicians: the renowned string quartet known as ETHEL and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi.

“Ayelet has composed a deeply heartfelt piece for ETHEL and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi entitled Shiv’a . We’ve been developing Shiv’a for over a year now, and recently recorded it. Ayelet’s style combines tuneful folk influences with moments of abstract improvisation.”
