DIDA /// Apologyby David Pearl | 02.04.15
After a short absence, “Pearls” is back and there’s no better way to be back than with a great heart-smashing music to officially start these beautiful Spring days.
DIDA is the front name of New York-based Israeli guitarist and vocalist Dida Pelled. She grow up in Israel and after the army she moved to New York where she has graduated with honor from the prestigious Jazz Department at The New School. In 2010 she recorded & released a very successful Jazz album with today’s jazz greats – Roy Hargrove and Gregory Hutchinson becoming a well known name in the Jazz circles and toured with the album all over the world.
“Apology” (Music and lyrics by Tal Ronen), an heartbreaking and beautiful song is taken from her second album (Co-produced by Yuval Vilner and Dida) which will be out later in 2015. The new album will be a combination of Jazzy tunes along side with Blues influences and Folky approach – a natural change in the music of this great musician.
Catch DIDA‘s Israeli CD release party @ The Zone, Tel Aviv on the 29th of April right before she goes back to NYC and watch the great video for “Apology” directed by Iyar Dyoman.
