Hello friends, I hope you are all well, I am attaching a new song for the upcoming album. The CD is almost ready, we have a few songs ready and we are still in the process of mixing everything, don (who mixes the songs) and I are making sure every thing sounds right. Oshe Shalom is a Jewish Prayer song ,composed by Jhos Singer.
I fell in love with this song at Chochmat Halev, a Jewish renewal congregation that I am playing in. The Prayer Songs Project made their own version to it, I sing the Hebrew part and Bouchaib sings the Arabic, Aharon is playing the Ney Flute and Jami is Playing cello.
It 99% ready. I wanted to share this with you, and hear what do you think, and I would love to get some feedback from you. to get a good sound I recommend playing the song on good speakers or use headphones.
We are hoping it can make peace come a little faster...:)
I am also attaching a picture of Bouchaib and me at the studio, recording the song
the words means:
"The one who makes peace, make peace on Israel, on Ishmael, and on the whole world"
Thank you for your support
I am excited to share with you the first song of the Prayer Song Project CD. Next week I am sending all the tracks to don benedictson, to do the mix. I plan to release the CD in March.
The song Evening Comes is a 12 minute journey into the night, with the beauty of it, the darkness, the unknown and the nourishment. (I recommend using head phones or good speakers, computer speakers are usually not that good).
Thank you for your support

I just returned from the recording studio in Berkeley.In the past month the recording studio has become my second home, where I have been cleaning, fixing, and polishing all the songs so that they sound just right. I realize I may have been a little naive to think I could finish the recording process in two days!
The good news is that the songs are sounding wonderful. The other news is that creative process sometimes takes more then you expect - it was news to me at least. I hope to finish all the recording and mixing in January. Thank you for being patient and thank you for your support.
