Karma Police, the track...

Tel Aviv-based musicians Rotem Shefy (vocalist) and Leat Sabbah (cellist/arranger) collaborated to realize an arrangement of Karma Police, a major hit from the alternative rock band Radiohead, third album OK Computer (1997).

What seemed at first a satirical cover transformed into a full-blown multi-layered middle-eastern arrangement, recorded with oud player Yaniv Taichmann, percussionist Ori Dekel. The track was recorded at Bardo Studios in Tel Aviv by Avi Ein Zur.

The Karma Ladies...

After having finished her studies in cello performance at the Manhattan School of Music and touring with various cross-genre and classical projects, Leat Sabbah moved to Israel to be closer to her musical roots. It was while studying at the Rimon School of Jazz & Contemporary Music that she met Tel Aviv based vocalist Rotem Shefy, an active performer on the scene with her own solo project as well as being involved in many other productions. In short, these are two ladies, in a city, in the world, making music, with a dream.

Karma Police, the clip...

The recording attracted the attention of Director Amos Geva, who has envisioned expanding this arrangement into a full-scale video clip. With the help of producer Roi Kurland, a clear vision and the perfect script evolved. Both Geva and Kurland, in addition to many others, have commited to the new video completely voluntarily, from genuine interest and faith in project.
