Chaim Yisrael & Lipa! Take New York By Storm

Last week Monday night and Tuesday afternoon, music fans in New York were treated to the concert of a lifetime. The shows produced by the new JME Live, reset the boundaries for concerts. World renown singer/composer Chaim Yisrael returned to New York for the first time in over ten years for a stellar concert alongside superstar Lipa Schmeltzer with the Freilach Band and Shira Choir at the Millenium Theatre in Brighton Beach, NY. Joining Chaim Yisrael all the way from Israel were two members of his “Band” Yoni Kesar on Guitar and Buziki and Raba Rahamin on Synthesizer

The concert produced/directed by Tzvi Waldman and musical director Mendy Hershkowitz of Freilach Band, featured stunning multimedia on multiple screens created by the talents Aviad Piekrash of the quality we see featured in some o the bigger Israeli concerts. Needless to say the two put on a phenomenal show stunning music fans. The two superstars even performed together several sets including mashups of Acharon Chaviv with Maalachim, Yeled Katan with Bat Melech and even Mi She’Maanim. Rumor is that a DVD of the event will hit stores as early as Chanukah.

Below are some credits and a great photo gallery by photographer Baruch Ezagui.
