"A breath of fresh air. Makes my heart feel good!"
Music by Rahel רחל (formerly "Acoustic Breezes")
Hello. Shalom. My name is Rahel (Rah-khel). Welcome to the site. Here you will get to know my talents, skills, education, knowledge... my offerings. I look forward to hearing from you.
A gifted, soulful songwriter, Rahel has a lot to say, and she says it well with a beautiful, diverse, collection of songs that are well-crafted, intelligent and musically sophisticated. There are hints of jazz, Middle East blends, further East mantras with sometimes driving rhythms and sometimes gentle sounds. Sonically refreshing and eminently beautiful, Rahel's music is in a league of its own. Ethnic/World-influenced music, multi-lingual and collaborations with musicians world-wide. Music for all occasions and ages.
