IMAGINE...

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Written & composed by: John Winston Lennon

"Dear friends,

 

The past few months were pretty amazing! 
The response to my last tour with the incredible Yuval Ron Ensemble was beyond imagination! 

My biggest wish as a musician is to be able to touch souls and open hearts through the music.

To be able to move what is standing still. To be able to wake what is sleeping deep.

While I was singing to you, something incredible happened! You turned into an eco of the sounds we created and your beautiful souls and big hearts touched and opened mine!  

I would like to thank everyone who came out to our concerts.

Thank you for allowing us to take you for a ride in our neighborhood!

Together we created magic!


I love you all,


Elinor. "

SUNSET CONCERTS AT THE 

SKIRBALL CULTURAL CENTER

 

Thursday, August 20, 8:00 p.m.

About the Program

Performing the concert program “My Heart Is in the East: Mystical Music and Dance of the Hebrew Tribes,” Israeli Angeleno Yuval Ron and an ensemble featuring Moroccan-Israeli vocalist Elinor Sitrish and sacred dance artist Mayaya take the stage with their intensely moving and adventurous pan–Middle Eastern music.

Formed in 1999, the Yuval Ron Ensemble includes Jewish and Christian artists who strive to create musical bridges between people of diverse faiths and ethnic backgrounds. As they pay homage to diverse Jewish cultures of Morocco, Yemen, Iraq, and Israel—from euphoric Kabbalistic Hebrew dances to fiery Sephardic-Andalusi songs—the ensemble creates a synthesis of styles that is both deeply traditional and boldly innovative.

The Hollywood Bowl celebrates it's 48th year of presenting SummerSounds, one of the most popular children's festivals in Southern California!

 

"I'm so honored to be taking a part in this beautiful and so important series!


In times like this of an enormous chaos around the world and endless battles over lands, cultures and religions, it is very important to educate our younger (and older) generation and to plant seeds of love, peace, friendship and equality.

As the guardians of this planet, we are obligated to do so!
And I cannot think of a better and more effective way to show someone a light than by speaking in the language of the world, language of colors and sounds!

I believe that we all artists are messengers in a way. We have the power to kindly bring people closer or, on the other hand, to break them apart... and so we all should use our gifts wisely.


As humans, we all have a way to speak to others hearts.

I truly feel blessed for the gifts I've been given and for being able to lead a way to a change through the sounds.

Find your way and set an example.
Do it with much kindness and love.
After all, we have only ONE home - Planet Earth, we are all ONE and life is too short and beautiful to live it in a battlefield.

Peace, Love & Harmony :)

Elinor"

"I will Believe" is a beautiful song which was written and composed by singer-songwriters Michael Caruso and Simon Bailey.

Elinor immediately fell in love with the song which talks about dreams, faith, friendship and love and had the honor to produce and record it with her multi-talented friend, producer and band member Roy Braverman.

 

If you like "I Will Believe", please share it with the world...It's free :)

 

A small note from Elinor:

"no matter what, do not loss your faith! do not give up on your dreams! do not stop believing! And if you feel like the world loses faith in your dreams, just know that I will believe". :)

"Elinor has fine-tuned her art and delivers true musical excellence.

We in her band are ecstatic to share her stages.

This next show is at The Mint, a beautiful and prestigious venue with a celebrated history which includes a parade of musical stars.

We love playing music. We love sharing it with you. We love giving our all in the name of music and in celebration of the human experience. We love creating memories for us and for you.

That's what 'Music For All' means".
