June 16th 2010 : The Tribute Recital Hall-York University.
A concert dedicated to songs written by Jewish composers and lyricists.
The Idea behind Gitit’s current production evolved about a year ago and involved a thoroughresearch in allocating and understanding the scope of Jewish talents and their contribution to the popular contemporary music throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
The year long research and process was a key to the cherry pick of these great masterpieces and the stories that influenced the creation looking for the song writers roots and understanding their backgroundscultures and heritage which lead to their worldwide huge success.
