Efrat Ben Zur, the acclaimed Israeli singer and actress, released her debut album "Diving" in 2001 and her second album "Efrat Ben Zur" in 2006; both albums received enthusiastic reviews.
Besides her music career, Efrat graduated Nissan Nativ's prestigious acting studio, she's a leading actress in the "Gesher Theatre" and has appeared in various films and hit TV series such as "Pillars of Smoke" & "Parashat Hashavu'a".
Ben Zur's new album "Robin" was released at the end of March and it's emerging as one of the most impressive works of the year.
It's a collection of Emily Dickinson's poems composed by Ben Zur.
The result is songs blessed with her magical touch which take you on a sorceress journey. The release of the first single, "Robin" was embraced by radio stations and the media as did the entire album;
"Ben Zur's new album "Robin" is a magical, moving, heartwarming masterpiece...
a powerful album that gets under your skin..."
"After being known to have an extraordinary voice in the local scene, Efrat Ben Zur reminds us of singers such as Sharon Van Etten & PJ Harvey following her two last albums, which include a hand harp, her Victorian darkness & old folk songs which she revived"
"It's Difficult to remain indifferent to this album, it's generally one of the best I've ever heard... each of the songs production & composition have the right connection and are defined as individual worlds..."
-Calcalist, Yedioth Aharonot
"Ben Zur is without a doubt, one of the most fascinating & unique artists in the local scene... she demonstrates her diverse vocals, which make Dickinson's poems fresh and whole"
"There are very few magical albums but "Robin" is magical…full of moving, precise and enchanting songs…"
