Shlomo Artzi. Osher Express (2012)
Number of CD(s) in package: 1
Five years have passed since Shlomo Artzi's last studio album, 2007's Sane (Shfuyim) and after tours and other projects, we have a new album containing 12 new songs written by Shlomo himself. With numerous guest performers and great production, this is the Shlomo Artzi we have always loved.
In addition to a wonderful album, you get quite a beautiful package and booklet, and you can see a lot of love and sweat went into them. They feature reproductions of original oil on canvas paintings by Maya Gold, produced in collaboration with Shlomo Artzi as a unified artistic vision alongside the music. The Hebrew lyrics to all the songs are also provided.

Shlomo Artzi's career in music was launched in the late 1960's as a soloist in the navy choral troupe. He then went on to appear in the Israel Folk Festivals, winning first place three times in five years. He has sold more albums than any Israeli singer, and his lengthy performances, lasting easily three hours or more, are immensely popular. Artzi's music fuses rock with native Hebrew strains, and its most prominent recurring image is dance, as a symbol for life and vitality.
