Soundtrack by Chava Alberstein
“If we have a true folk singer, it is CHAVA ALBERSTEIN, ” Yediot Aharonot, Israel’s largest daily newspaper said about Alberstein, naming her the most important female musician in Israel’s history.
Israel’s iconic musician, Chava Alberstein, has released nearly fifty albums since the late 1960′s. A dozen of her albums are gold, six are platinum, and one is triple platinum. Six of her albums have been rewarded the Kinor David Prize, Israel’s Grammy.
But these formal accolades don’t capture what it has meant to me as the author of this film to include Chava’s voice in the story.
The sound of Chava’s voice and her theatricality had colored my childhood as a young Israeli girl. Her songs are humorous and dramatic, soulful and light. I think of Chava Alberstein not as a sound track, but as a character in the film.
