Benny Friedman: Bnei Heicholo: A Shabbos with Benny Friedman

by yossi January 01, 2014

On the heels of his mega-hit “ Yesh Tikva”, Benny Friedman was hard at work on a follow-up album of original songs. But a phone conversation with a friend and fan set a different project in motion. This special project is reaching its final stages and in the coming weeks, the popular singer will release “ Bnei Heicholo: A Shabbos with Benny Friedman”, produced by Sruly Meyer, arranged by Avremi G. and recorded and directed by Ian Freitor. For some added flavor, Benny has also teamed up with the Yedidim choir, whose golden touch adds a splendid dimension to the entire album.

Bnei Heicholo leads listeners on a musical tour through Shabbos, from the joy of Friday afternoon’s preparations to the serenity of candle lighting and right on through Havdala’s soft nostalgia. “I’ve dreamed of a Shabbos album for years,” Benny explains. “And recently, between Yesh Tikva, concerts and the heavy work on the upcoming original album, we stopped for Shabbos, as it were.” In addition to the lofty title track, an ethereal Chabad Nigun, the album features Benny’s take on over 20 nigunim, Zemiros and popular songs, all tied together by the theme of “the day of rest.”

The album is distributed by Aderet Music, and is available online at MostlyMusic.com or anywhere Jewish music is sold.
