Liron Meyuhas (Israel/Italy)
Translating as "The Gypsy" in Italian, La Gitana project is a border-jumping fusion of African Rhythm, Italian Folklore and Middle Eastern spice. Following the success of her Headstart album funding campaign, Liron has performed throughout Italy and is now touring Israel in support of her self titled album "La Gitana".
A Percussion artist, Hang drum master, singer, performer and wanderer, Liron has been travelling the world for the past decade, searching and gathering sounds and influences. Her journey has taken her from North and West Africa, through the Sinai, to Italy's rich folkloric tradition, with roots firmly planted in the incredible complexity of Jerusalem. Liron has studied rhythm in Guinea, jazz in Sienna and musical education in Tel Aviv. These wide influences converge in a compelling live performance, celebrating both the diversity of influence and the unifying, uplifting experience that we seek in music.
Liron is represented at WOMEX by her agent Jonah Clarfield.
