Les Yeux Noirs is a fabulous group. Chava Alberstein should be opening for them. She's a boring, middle-of-the-road folk singer left over from the 60s. Her choice of material is all Hebrew or Yiddish. Most Of the Hebrew songs were uninteresting musically, and since the majority of the audience didn't understand the lyrics, pretty pointless.
She has little presence and not a great voice.
The program design was poor. The talent and energy of the musical group made Chava a serious disappointment following them.
Quotes & Highlights
- “Alberstein’s quivering tenor is sublimely expressive, full of pathos when caressing a ballad, frisky when riding the crest of a traditional dance tune.” --<em>Entertainment Weekly</em>
<p>With nearly 50 albums to her credit, many of them now gold, platinum, or triple platinum, Chava Alberstein is the most accomplished singer in Israeli history, musically meandering from folk to rock to traditional and worldbeat styles. The evening is a unique double bill with the Paris-based octet Les Yeux Noirs performing an irresistibly modern gypsy-klezmer fusion.</p>
