Featured Artists

  • Trio C tot de derde
  • The Dutch music group Trio C tot de derde consists of the three young musicians Carel den Hertog (violin), Coos Lettink (accordeon) and Caspar Terra (clarinet). The music they play is inspired by klezmer, music from the Balkans and gypsy-music. They create their own unique sound, performing traditional melodies in a particular and often unexpected way. Since the boy’s enjoy improvisation so much, no musical piece ever sounds twice the same. While improvising, the members of Trio C tot de derde are playfully challenging each other to virtuosity and lyrical sounds. The music they play expresses euphoric happiness, as well as intense sadness, which means music for dancing, but also for dreaming.

  • Rami Kleinstein is known as one of Israel's greatest composers. Rami Kleinstein has often been compared to Elton John and Billy Joel. In 2005 Rami released his latest album, “Harbe Panim” (Many Faces), receiving great reviews and many of its songs penetrated the top of the charts in Israel. In 1997, Rami produced his sixth album entitled "Kol ma She Tirtzi” (Everything You Want) which reached triple platinum after only ten days. This success was no surprise as Rami had already been elected Israeli Radio and Television's "Singer of the Year" in 1995 after his "Tapuchim U’ Tmarim” (Apples and Dates) album reached triple platinum. Rami is also known for composing and arranging music for other singers. ..
