Besides being a singer-songwriter, Avital Raz is also a highly trained and active performer of both Western Early music and Indian classical music. She was recently introduced, on "the voice of music" radio, during a live performance, as one of the most interesting and versatile artists active in Israel today.
Avital's lyrics are daring and eccentric. Her unique composing and singing styles blend the diverse musical traditions she studied rigorously.
Borne in Jerusalem to American parents, Avital studied both singing and composition at the Jerusalem Rubin Academy of music and dance (B.mus). In her early twenties she moved to India and studied Druphad - The oldest form of north Indian classical music for six years under prof. Ritwik Sanyal of Benares Hindu University.
