Rahel is a compassionate, insightful, sensitive, versatile award-winning performing guitarist, vocalist, recording artist, songwriter and therapeutic music practitioner. Her progressive guitar-driven grooves fuse jazz, blues, rock and world rhythms with strong expressive vocals to create a wealth of unique "free-verse" style award-winning songs.
Inspired lyrics reach deeply into the Psalms and Mosaic wisdom for both poetry and enlightenment. Early influences from the American folk music revival of the ‘60's and the ‘70's Woodstock era combine with a wealth of world traditions, sounds and rhythms that have become integral to Rahel’s hypnotic sound. She presents a repertoire that is rich in Jewish traditional, liturgical, Israeli and original songs and compositions that sing of faith, the journey of life, Torah, and the mysteries of G-D.
Rahel is a trained Therapeutic Music Practitioner; she plays music for comfort, relaxation, healing and transition.
