Yael Naim

Yael Naim at the Jazz Café

14/12/2011 from 19:00 to 22:30

Their differing roots and their multiple passion for music unites them: Yael Naim releases a second, four-handed album together with David Donatien, as a new collection of graceful songs.

After the worldwide success of the feel-good album, released in 2007, Yael Naim unveils her second album today « She Was a Boy ». Closeted in a Parisian apartment for two years, Yael Naim and David Donatien perfected Yael’s songs in Hebrew and English, which culminated in a commercial and artistic success (Victoire de la Musique 2008, for the Album of the Year World Music category). Following the use of the song « New Soul » in a promotional advert for Apple, it entered  the Top Ten on the US sales chart.

Since then however, the Parisian flat has been turned into a studio; more space, but the same passion to make an album at their own pace. Having made great use of these past three years by playing anywhere where there was even a slight echo of their music, and to taste the pleasures of the fringe Yael Naim has given her all to this process that she herself qualifies as a particularly intimate way to create songs.

In this new album Yael and David haven’t hesitated in accompanying their singing with a simple violin or solo guitar in order to better preserve the intimacy of the songs.

Strength and fragility, a trek around the world (jazz, variety pop, classical), and a soul-searching journey of self, here the voices and melodies vibrate within the compositions of Yael, and so does the listener.
