It’s not often you get the best of Tel Aviv’s cutting edge music scene performing right here in Vancouver, but that’s exactly what you’ll enjoy at this year’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration featuring the Jane Bordeaux band, Israel’s hottest new act. This magical group has taken the Israeli music scene by storm over the past year, selling out venues everywhere. They will bring their unique blend of Hebrew indie-folk-country music to our community’s biggest Yom Hatzmaut celebration on May 1, 2017.
The Jane Bordeaux band brought down the house at last year’s Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival and they were the most played band on Galgalatz (Israel’s most popular radio station) in 2015. Tune in and you’ll hear critically acclaimed singles like Einav, Eich Efshar (How can you not) and Whiskey album being played in heavy rotation, which helped propel their self-titled debut album to certified gold.
Internationally, they are best known for the enchanting video for their song Ma'agalim (Circles), which has racked up more than 2.1 million views online and shattered language barriers with its stunning animation.
It isn’t just audiences who have fallen in love with the Jane Bordeaux band. Here’s a sample of the critical acclaim the band has garnered:
"The best Musical Success of the Past year" - Itay Shtern, Haaretz
“Israel’s favorite indie folk group is spreading its wings” – Jerusalem Post
"Jane Bordeaux are the sweetest candy in the Israeli music industry, you must catch them performing live as soon as possible." - Gal Ohovsky, mako
