"Rahel's beautiful music is a breath of fresh air. Makes my heart feel good..."
Rahel is making waves with a wide reaching repertoire that is intelligent, musically sophisticated and ethnically diverse. With sometimes driving rhythms and sometimes gentle sounds, Rahel brilliantly fuses jazz, Middle East rhythms, Far east mantras, and appropriate contemporary stylings to produce a sound that is fascinating for music lovers of all ages, cultures and faiths.
"If they want to know me, tell them to stroll through my collection. I'm in my collection" Isabella Stewart Gardner, collector of beautiful art, said that. At my age I could write pages upon pages about the life I have lived to today. Yet, all that I am and all that I've seen ultimately is reflected in my music. So, as with Isabella Stewart, it's best to go to my collection!
In a nutshell, my early influences were from the American folk music revival of the ‘60's and the ‘70's; pre- and post Woodstock era. Today those vibes and energies fuse with a wealth of world traditions, sounds and rhythms that have become integral to what has been described as my "hypnotic sound".
Growing up in 1960’s New England I was surrounded by the beautiful finger styles of James Taylor and Paul Simon; the perfect synchronicity of Peter Paul & Mary; the complex simplicity of Bob Dylan's prolific social commentary; the open tunings of Mary McCaslin and Joni Mitchell; and the exquisite vocal harmonies & creative meanderings of Crosby Stills & Nash. I sat hours in my room glued to my little turntable that played the works of these iconic musicians on those old vinyls. I learned all their songs by ear as I set out to emulate the masters. I learned their music and even began to write a few songs of my own! Then my generation was suddenly thrust into the psychedelic sounds of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin and Santana. This simply fed more fuel to my fire. World travels and living in Israel from 1976-1998 attuned my musical ears to a fusion of diverse multicultural blends of Jewish, Israeli, and Arabic music as well as an array of world roots sounds and rhythms. Today my music has evolved to include soft, soothing, comforting and healing music that enhances personal experience with an energy that is greater than us.
I am not a mainstream artist so you will need to think out of the box and find the moments to relax, enjoy and feel the music. Be sure to share your favorites. Music is essential to sustaining a happy healthy world!
