CARA Award CARA 2003 Award Winner for Best Album and Best Song ("La Comida")
A passionate a cappella celebration of women's voices and percussion with songs that affirm life and sing a vision of one world at peace - spanning the spectrum of original and traditional music - sung in English, Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino. Heart Beat: a place where the personal, social, political and spiritual resonate in harmony. Includes a Yiddish song of resistance ("Zog Maran"), a Brazilian song of praise ("Elokim Noten Hakol"), and a joyous song adapted from a South African freedom anthem that will get you to your feet ("Yesh Lanu Koach").


Listeners' Comments:

“These Yiddish Divas make music that embodies peace, resilience, reconciliation, and the notion that we will overcome our enemies with our singing.”

Derk Richardson, San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Combined, they've had more theatre, singing and music experience than the Rolling Stones have had tours. It shows, rather brilliantly. The production is first rate, and no two songs are born into the same style. If you like the world, you'll love exploring this disc.”

Ben Ohmart, Music Dish
