Ester Rada /// Life Happensby David Pearl | 18.04.13
Ester Rada is one of the sensational musicians in Tel Aviv right now. Her combination of Nu-Soul music with Jazzy and Funky flavours is one of those exceptional things.
Critics describe Ester’s genre of music as “a graceful composition of Ethio-Jazz, funk, soul and r&b, with mixed undertones of black grooves”. Ester’s debut EP “Life Happens” (produced by the amazing SaBBo and Kuti man) includes the mixture of soulful music and the warmth of her voice. This single is the best showcase for what will come next .
I can go on and on and tell you the names that cross my mind when I hear her music: Nina Simone, Jill Scott, Lianne La Havas and Erykah Badu. That said, I’ll recommend putting all your daily worries aside and listen to the full EP, or even better – catch her performing at Glastonbury 2013. I promise it will ease your mind and make your heart fall in-love again and again.
