the power of two
Posted in music August 11th, 2008 by piablog


The other night I was watching Taratata on France 4 (TV5 overseas) and for those of you who don’t know this show, it is the French music show of all music shows. It’s closest equivalent would be the Jools Holland show in the UK . Anyway, it’s very popular and showcases all the big names in the music industry worldwide right alongside upcoming artists. It’s a funny mix on the show, and I love that Lenny Kravitz walks off stage and 2 seconds later a not so known band starts up. The bands are often asked to co-perform, playing a cover that they both like. Anyway, the other night a particular performance took my breath away. I have not stopped thinking about it and I wanted to share it here with you. It was a cover of The Beetles We Can Work It Out by Israeli singer Noa, and her Palestinian singer/friend Mira Awad.

The energy of these two women is intense and incredibly beautiful, check out the video of the performance that I saw here.

    First this clip gave me goosebumps…then I started to tear up. Having spent some time studying, living and working in the Middle East, this song is like a balm to soothe this troubled region. It gives me hope.

    Came across your blog through Anna’s blog ABT. and was so happy to find Achinoam Nini (Noa) featured here. With more cooperations like this one, this troubled area might have a chance.
