I had the great honor to record a beautiful bas yisrael singing in my heder nigunim (recording studio) in my home. This is the first time that I have really recorded someone else since opening the studio about a year and a half ago. This has been such a special time, creating my own music without having to go through the medium of someone elses' vision and technical expertise. (and not having to sing in front of a man. It is such an intimate and organic process, so much more connected to my soul. For the first year I was longing at every moment to be able to create in my heder nigunim, and every opportunity (including late at night) I was working on my music. I recorded "Relax and Know" (released) and "Sister Heart" (which is still unreleased), in the first year, and now that I have finished with those projects, I have a bit more space in my time and heart for recording others. Hashem sent Amalia my way, who wanted to record a CD to encourage and heal her father who is very sick. (Emmanuel ben Rachel refuah shalaymah), and her sweet voice and simple, unaffected way of being and expressing herself was like a healing balm to be around. I feel like my recording space is a big healing in the world, a place where women can find a way to express their innermost selves in a totally safe space. I loved to be the midwife for her expression, and bask in the beauty of her holy soul.
