Folk-rock singer Maya Isacowitz is a native Israeli who writes her lyrics in English and welcomes the elements of Celtic harp, banjo and harmonica that are blended into her sound.
Itís all part of the mix that happens when you take the daughter of South African immigrants, raise her in primarily Israeli enclaves in the north, and throw in a father who builds musical instruments and plays harmonica.
Isacowitz, a 24-year-old singer/songwriter, first discovered music at around 13 when her father taught her some guitar chords. It appears to have been the right introduction, as Isacowitz immediately began writing songs, playing guitar and singing for hours in the comfort of her room, in a typical teenage way.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always. Mahatma Gandhi
