Over the last few years more and more Jews across the globe are discovering the music of Aaron Razel. Was it because of the Krembo song, or perhaps his guest appearance on Yeedle’s last album Lev Echad? No one is certain.
However, little is actually known about Razel to those of us living in chutz laaretz (outside of Eretz Yisrael). When did he first start playing? Composing? How did he create his signature “style”? In this FIRST VIDEO EVER, Aaron Razel talks to us in his native tongue, ENGLISH. He tells us about his grandfather, a musician and Holocaust survivor, who hid out to survive the war. How his father made sure Aaron and his siblings were taught instruments from an early age, and how a trip to the mystical city of Tzfat helped Razel to compose his first niggunim.
In honor of the release of Aaron’s upcoming fourth album entitled “Kavati Et Moshavi”, Aaron is releasing for the FIRST TIME EVER a version of the title track in ENGLISH. Aaron said “The lyrics to this particular song are not from tefilla or piyutim, but rather a story of my life. That being the case, I wanted EVERYONE to understand them, English speaking people too,” tells Razel. For a limited time the English versions “I Set My Place Here (In The Beit Hamidrash)” is available on MostlyMusic.comas a FREE download (link: https://www.mostlymusic.com/i-
