Riff Cohen to perform in Istanbul
ISTANBULIsraeli singer Riff Cohen will take the stage at Istanbul’s Hayal Kahvesi for two gigs on May 9 and 10.
The 31-year-old singer-songwriter performs her songs in Hebrew, French and Arabic, as she was born in Tel Aviv to a Tunisian father and an Algerian-French mother.
Her debut album was released in Israel in 2012, one year after being brought into the public awareness with the single “A Paris” and its music video. The album includes 14 tracks, four of which are in Hebrew, one in Nubian and the rest in French.
The album reveals a complete picture of the vast musical world of one of Israel’s most intriguing young music composers. It’s an oriental urban album that deals with the new cosmopolitan culture and the perfect soundtrack for daydreaming of open, borderless spaces.
With her playful lyrics and sound, Cohen’s songs are considered modernized music of the Middle East.
Tickets for the Istanbul concerts are available on Biletix.
