CARA 2003 Award Winner for Best Album and Best Song ("La Comida")
A passionate a cappella celebration of women's voices and percussion
with songs that affirm life and sing a vision of one world at peace -
spanning the spectrum of original and traditional music -
sung in English, Yiddish, Hebrew and Ladino.
Heart Beat: a place where the personal, social, political and spiritual resonate in harmony.
Includes a Yiddish song of resistance ("ZogMaran"),
a Brazilian song of praise ("’Èlokim Noten Hakol"),
and a joyous song adapted from a South African freedom anthem that will get you to your feet ("Yésh Lànu Koakh").
Derk Richardson of the San Francisco Bay Guardian said,
"These Yiddish Divas make music that embodies peace, resilience, reconciliation,
and the notion that we will overcome our enemies with our singing."
