Today is a day I have dreamed about for some time. After visiting and performing recently in my family's homeland, Monastir (now known as Bitola, Macedonia), I have been mulling an idea over that is finally coming to fruition. Today I am launching The Monastir Project, which is a brand new international cultural initiative that will bring together Israelis, Macedonians, and me!, to record a new album of Macedonian Jewish music to celebrate the history of Jewish Monastir, a community destroyed after WWII. The project has several phases and will take at least a year to get off the ground, but it truly is a dream come trie for me to combine my musical interests with my very personal family history.
