YouTube Video of the Day - Alejandro Escovedo
Live at Studio A for wfuv
Born and raised in Israel, schooled in India and with a sound that has been described as "experimental folk" one might expect Ms. Raz to be a wispy hippie type prone to channelling her inner spirit and warbling on about love. However a glance at her web page blog reveals a woman who while immersed in her Jewish heritage rails against the hypocrisy of orthodox Jewry and in particular the role demanded of women within it. She comes across as feisty and funny in equal measure and although her album isn't political or a rant against her bugbears reading the blog shed some light on the person behind the songs here.
