In the little things lurk the big picture, and the details of everyday life suggest the wild regions of the heart. Jerusalem-born composer and vocalist Ayelet Rose Gottlieb sings and composes from these spaces, accessing the compelling, tumultuous world of her homeland.
Written over many years, the songs of her latest album, Roadsides, feature Israeli & Palestinian poetry, set to music by Gottlieb. The songs chronicle clunky ceiling fans and hymns of female blessing, watermelon hugs and sorrowful absences, abandoned sheds and soaring, hopeful wings. Gottlieb’s voice, with its cool refinement and warm welcome, brings a jazz-inflected, pitch-perfect sense to these little, but weighty tales. Supported by a band of close collaborators, Gottlieb presents the flavors and sensations of everyday life, in what she called an “open letter to my homeland.”
Ayelet is also a member of John Zorn’s a-cappella quartet Mycale, an international vocal ensemble featuring Ayelet Rose Gottlieb (Israel), Sofia Rei (Argentina), Sara Serpa (Portugal) and Malika Zara (Morocco).
In March 2015, Ayelet will present her new composition "12 Lunar Meditations: Summoning The Witches" at Voice Over Mind Festival in Vancouver (Western Front Gallery, March 21st). She will perform this new music with her Vancouver based band - Meredith Bates - Violin, Aram Bajakian - Guitar, Peggy Lee - Cello & Dylan VanDerSchyff - Drums - as well as the Western Front's improvisers choir.
