After a period of silence in which Yehuda Glantz composed and arranged, it’s time to hear new songs of his new release “Chai Vekayam”
Songs in Hebrew and Spanish, as he knows and is known for many years.
Making music is an art, it’s not an hocus pocus, and when you’re a perfectionist like Yehuda, things are cooked slowly with a lot of thought and investment … countless nights of hard work are invested in this album….Yehuda Glantz is the pioneer in incorporating the charango, the Bolivian native instrument, to the jewish culture and fuses his music with melodies and autochthonous instruments. Yehuda adopted the charango to express the psalms of King David and the prayers of the people of Israel to integrate music and South American rhythms with his own compositions.
The album:Chai VeKayam is a compilation of 14 tracks of new beautiful songs. This album is a fusion of Latin-pop, klezmer and world music.The flamenco style song about Jerusalem, “Jerusalem My Life”, is in English and Spanish.
“Yesh Li” is a light Jewish cumbia with a beautiful message of hope; a song that we produced in Spanish also for the Spanish market. “Shabat Shalom” is a happy song for Kabalat Shabbat. “Samachti”, “Lev Tahor” and “Gam Kielech” are all quiet songs with lyrics from psalms. “Pat Bamelach”, a salsa based on the famous Mishna and Yehudas original lyrics. “Azamra” was done with the participation of Yehudas son, Moshe, on the vocals. The instrumental songs on this album are “Yocheved” which was written with the inspiration of Yehudas daughter and “Jazz Metaktak”, a master piece of Klezmer-Latino-jazz compositions. The grand finale of the record is the famous song “Besame Mucho” in Hebrew with a Latin twist arrangement, and the happy “Chai Vekayam” a trance-organic song to bring joy and happiness to everyone in the world, wherever they are.
