I've opened an "Israeli Youngsters" group there. its real nice, here's a direct link (you can only view if you're registered to shmooze, its quick, free, fun, etc.) – http://www.shmooze.com/group.php?group_i
Each group has a forum, a blog, file collections…
Since i had to get it started, here's a post from the Concert Review Blog i wrote:
She's a singer-songwriter. A woman who started singing, out of nowhere about 6 years ago, at the age of 35.
Last thursday Hadara was playing close to my home. naturally – I went. I've been to about 16 of her concerts the past year.
The songs are mostly in english, there's this sweat sexuallity in her music, her voice and her words. (ok, i'm a fan, i might be bias. I AM bias).
It took some time for her to warm up, new place and people, etc. half an hour and a couple of wine glasses later, the woman finally started singing my favorite songs.
there was בואי אראה לך, her best hebrew song (on my opinion), Good Song, Nobody wants you, I'm not tempted, Wedding song and many other good ones.
It's Hadara and the drunk piano. some stories, some wine, lots of wine, and excellent music. Slowly (but surely) you could see all the couples cuddling together. Music drawing them closer.
Then it ended.
I'm waiting for the next one to come.
check out her website – http://www.hadara.co.il, where you can download some music, watch some video-clips and read her blog.
