Jazz in the Garden

Maya Belsitzman & Matan Ephrat: “Crazy He Calls Me”

The Israeli duo Maya Belsitz­man & Matan Ephrat inspire audiences worldwide. Matan's virtuoso skills on the drums and Maya's capti­vating vocals and perfor­mance on the cello create a unique sound that is enriched by the highly diverse cultures they have en­countered on their many travels.

Their new project, “Crazy He Calls Me,” presents the greatest classic love songs of the early twentieth century, re­interpreted in Maya & Matan’s highly individual style and accompanied by three virtuoso string players.
