Asaf Avidan & the Mojos

Asaf Avidan is a young Israeli singer-songwriter, who sounds like nothing you've heard this eon (no...seriously). When confronted with writing about his voice, local media were in general awe. "A voice that does not let you stay indifferent" - Ha'aretz "When he opens his mouth, people rub their eyes in disbelief - this magic continues all through the show, enchanting every soul in the audience." - Ma'ariv "Asaf has it all - the rocker look, unimaginable charisma, great lyrics, and a voice reminiscent of Joplin or Plant!" - 106fm radio "the lost love child of Dylan & Joplin" - 101fm radio Asaf started out armed only with his acoustic guitar, and a bunch of heart drenching words. After touring feverishly before small crowds around the country, he decided to mix in a little more rock and dirt. The Mojos were brought to life, and a monster was created. Asaf Avidan & the Mojos sound like a blend of everything we liked about rock in the 60's and 70's, with a edge of modern sound and a dash of... that thing that happens along only once in a generation: a true unique voice. Captivating audiences of all ages, his lyrics and music strike a global chord. From his acoustic, armor piercing duets with Hadas Kleinman on the cello, to the body shaking, all-band rock tunes!
