A singer/songwriter born in Paris to Tunisian, Sephardi-Jewish parents, Yael Naïm first hit the pop-music scene in 2001, but her debut was not what she had hoped for… She moved to Israel, kept on singing to make a living, but it wasn’t until she met up with David Donatien, a West Indian percussionist, in 2004 that she regained her desire to write and perform. Working as a group, Donatien and Naïm came together to record Naïm’s second album, Yael Naïm. Released in October of 2007, the album contains songs in French, English, and Hebrew, and includes a surprising cover of Britney Spears’ Toxic. Yael Naïm has been critically acclaimed the world over. Her single New Soul topped the charts worldwide and the success of this song made her the first ever Israeli solo artist to have a top ten hit in the US. New single Go To The River is out now!
