Victoria Hanna :
"My debut album consists entirely of ancient Hebrew texts with which I grew up.
Part 1 – Victoria – focuses on the power of speech and breaking it down into its component letters – it is rhythmic – produced by Tamir Muskat.
Part 2 – Hanna – focuses on the voice that breaks through, the voice that calls – it is melodic – produced by sound artist Frank van der Weij.
Victoria and Hanna are my two grandmothers, after whom I am named.
They were both married as girls, against their will.
Victoria – rebelled, stood up for herself, had a courageous heart and was revolutionary for me.
Hanna – was withdrawn, served, surrendered and was my home and my heart.
They are both within me."
“Hanna is blessed with one of those voices that demands full attention, holding audiences rapt and leaving mouths agape “- Time Out New York
