Itai is a singer, songwriter, pianist, accordionist, and prayerleader who seeks to bridge the song circle with the dance floor. They infuse words from the siddur (prayerbook) with the ones in their heart; prayers for unity among humans and Earth. "Arise," the debut album of this project, has a studio crew of eleven people and offers a colorful palette of instrumental arrangements and a wide dynamic range. You will hear influences of klezmer, funk, and folk and lyrics in Hebrew and English. Itai creates from a place informed by tradition while still facing outwards. In doing so, they hope to inspire others to look inwards and embrace their roots.
