Chava Alberstein won renown as a singer while still a teen in the early '60s. Her soothing, often haunting voice became synonymous with Israel's classic acoustic folk style. By the '80s, she had transformed herself from a beloved vocalist into a respected singer/songwriter. Along the way, Alberstein has recorded rock, folk, children's music and klezmer, among other sounds, while singing in Hebrew, English and Yiddish. On later albums, she's experimented with more contemporary production and sampling techniques, keeping her music fresh after half a century in the music business.
