Help Israeli singer / songwriter Tal Ben Ari reach her goal to record her first solo album.

ENGLISH :  (Spanish and French are below)

Dear friends and supporters :

My name is Tal Ben Ari, I am a singer and composer, born and raised in Israel, currently living in Barcelona for 7 years now. Full with excitement I am beginning one of my greatest adventures of my life, recording my first solo album with my personal compositions.

Since my arrival to Barcelona, I've had the chance to meet amazing musicians from all over the world, collaborating together and playing music. (for example: Playing for Change-an amazing project with musicians from all over the world, uniting through music. Asikides- a band with Mediterranean roots, mixed with flamenco and jazz. Gema 4- a female acapella quartet from Cuban origin, singing traditional son and boleros -- and as well Moussakis- a band with Balkan repertoire with touches of swing , jazz and funky… besides these projects i have worked with a lot of other musicians, recording and performing together.)

Each of these projects and each one of the musicians i´ve met, have showed me a bit of his roots and his culture. I found myself so lucky to be so inspired and enriched by all this amazing music that helped me constantly to expand my horizons. And so after listening and singing and experimenting, I have started to compose my own songs,combining different languages (Hebrew, Spanish, English, French and Yemenite) with different rhythms and genres, a mix between my roots and the new music I have known.This is how this journey started, with a lot of passion and inspiration. I am excited to work on this album giving life and form to this dream of mine. Internet has always been an amazing way to get to know new artists and music from all over the planet, with a touch of a click. This source connects us and helps us interact between people all over this planet. So I find it amazing the fact can communicate with you throughout this page, sharing my story and my music and asking you to be a part of this album.

As most of you know, making an album is a long and interesting process, that requires a lot of work, and of course money, to pay the musicians, the studio, editing, mastering, design, fabrique ect….This is where I need your help!!! If you want and are able to support this album, with the amount you can (every dollar helps!!!) you will be supporting this album from the beginning, getting involved and helping me to make this album in the most sincere way possible. It's an amazing thing, not just for us, but to the whole music industry as we know it -- more solidarity, more connection between the artist and the public, and more independence to put our hearts in what we believe. For each contribution, besides my everlasting gratitude, i will be offering things in return, as you can see on the right side of the page, exclusively for the supporters of this page. I thank you so much for dedicating a bit of your time for reading this and for all your support. I promise this will be an amazing record!

SPANISH :

Queridos amigos!

Soy Tal Ben Ari, cantante y compositora de origen Israelí residente en Barcelona desde el 2005. Con mucha emoción me estoy embarcando en una de las aventuras mas importantes de mi vida: la grabación de mi
primer álbum, con mis composiciones.

Desde mi llegada a Barcelona, he tenido la suerte de  conocer músicos increíbles de todas partes del mundo y colaborar con ellos, compartiendo música. Algunos de ellos son: Playing for Change (proyecto que junta músicos de todo el mundo), Asikides (banda de raíces mediterráneas fusionadas con flamenco y jazz),  Gema 4 (cuarteto a capella femenino de origen cubano, que interpreta sones y boleros), Los Moussakis  (un grupo con repertorio balcánico con toques de jazz, funky y swing), entre muchas otras colaboraciones con otros artistas locales e internacionales…

Todos estos proyectos y músicos que conocí, me abrieron una puerta hacia sus raíces musicales y así fuí expandiendo cada vez más mis horizontes.
Empecé a componer mis canciones, combinando  mis raíces y las nuevas influencias musicales que quedaron resonando dentro de mi, utilizando varios idiomas (hebreo, inglés, judeo-yemení, francés y español), diferentes ritmos y estilos musicales.

Internet es una maravillosa fuente para conocer nuevas músicas, nuevos artistas e interactuar entre personas, estemos donde estemos.
Es increíble para mí el hecho de poder comunicarme con ustedes a través de esta página para pedirles de formar parte de este sueño: Mi primer álbum.

Como muchos de ustedes saben,  preparar un disco requiere mucho trabajo : ensayos, sesiones en estudio, edición, mezcla, masterización, diseño, fabricación, etc) y por supuesto, requiere mucho dinero.

Aquí es donde necesito su ayuda, cada uno como quiera o pueda.
Con lo que puedan aportar (cualquier contribución ayuda!!!), estan apoyando un proyecto desde sus inicios, involucrándose en algo en que creen. Esto es un hecho increíble, no sólo para nosotros sino para la industria musical tal y como la conocemos. Mas solidaridad, mas contacto entre el artista y su publico y mas independencia para poner el corazón entero en lo que uno siente.

Por cada contribución suya habrá una ofrenda por mi parte, que aparece en la parte derecha de la página, exclusivamente para los que apoyan desde esta página.
Estoy mas que agradecida a cada uno de ustedes que ha tomado el tiempo de leer este texto y contribuir a la realización de mi álbum.
Gracias por ayudarme a hacer de este sueño una realidad.

Muchísimas gracias y les prometo  grabar un disco con todo mi cariño.

FRENCH :

Mon nom est Tal Ben Ari. Je suis chanteuse et compositrice d'origine israélienne résidant  à Barcelone depuis 2005.
Je m'embarque actuellement, avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme, dans l'une des aventures les plus importantes de ma vie : l'enregistrement de mon premier album avec mes propres compositions.
Depuis mon arrivée à Barcelone, j'ai eu la chance de rencontrer de formidables musiciens venant des quatre coins du monde et de collaborer avec eux. Entre autres collaborations: "Playing for change" (projet qui rassemble des musiciens du monde entier), "Asikides"( un ensemble de racines méditerranéennes qui fusionne flamenco et jazz), "Gema 4"(quartet féminin à capella d'origine cubaine, chantant son et boléro), "les moussakis"(groupe de répertoire balkanique mêlant jazz, funky et swing), pour ne citer qu'eux...
Chacune de ces collaborations et de ces rencontres m'a ouvert une porte vers sa musique et ses racines, élargissant ainsi mon horizon musical personnel. Tout ceci m'a finalement amenée à composer en fusionnant mes racines aux nouvelles influences musicales qui résonnent en moi et en m'exprimant au travers de différentes langues (hébreu, anglais, français, espagnol) et différents styles musicaux.

Internet est une source inépuisable de découvertes musicales et artistiques, et un moyen d'interagir où que nous soyons.
C'est pour moi incroyable de pouvoir communiquer avec vous grâce à ce site, pour vous demander de faire partie de ce rêve:  mon premier album.

Comme beaucoup d'entre vous le savent déjà, le processus d'élaboration d'un disque est long et demande un énorme travail: répétitions, enregistrements, édition, mixage, mastering, design, fabrication, etc… Tout cela coute bien sûr de l'argent.
Voilà pourquoi j'ai besoin de votre aide, chacun à sa manière et à sa mesure. Quelle que soit la somme versée (toute aide est la bienvenue!), elle sera un véritable soutien pour mon projet ainsi qu'une forme d'engagement.
Pour chaque contribution il y aura une offre de ma part; Elle apparait sur la gauche de cette page, exclusivement pour ceux qui apporteront leur participation depuis ce site.

Je remercie chaleureusement les gens qui ont pris le temps de me lire et d'apporter leur
soutien à mon album.
Merci de rendre ce rêve possible.
Je vous promets d'enregistrer ce disque avec amour.
