Rompendosi, la ceramica prende nuova vita attraverso le linee di frattura all’oggetto, che diventa ancora più pregiato. Proprio grazie alle sue cicatrici. Così l’arte giaponese del Kintsugi diventa l’arte di abbracciare il danno, di non vergognarsi delle ferite. Le linee di frattura vengono riparate con l’oro. Quella polvere d’oro di cui si parla in “Gold Dust”, il terzo singolo estratto dall’album (omonimo) del cantautore Adar Alfandari. Israeliano, 24 anni, è al lavoro per ultimare gli ultimi dettagli del lavoro discografico, in uscita tra febbraio e marzo.
ENGLISH VERSION BELOW
Adar scrive musica sia in ebraico che in inglese in vari generi, principalmente indie-rock e folk. Ha iniziato con la band “Dor Hamabul” e ha suonato in tutta la nazione, ricevendo migliaia di visualizzazioni e stream nelle sue canzoni, parte delle quali realizzate anche in collaborazione con suo fratello. Ha anche partecipato alla quinta stagione di “The Voice Israele”.
Adar ha dunque abbracciato la carriera da solista. Il terzo singolo “Gold Dust”, prodotto da Idan Katz, segue “What Is This That I Miss” – il primo brano autoprodotto di Adar pubblicato due anni fa, “Cap Gun- אקדח פיקות” e “How I’m Gonna Make You Mine”. Questi ultimi costituiscono i primi due singoli estratti dall’album che hanno guadagnato migliaia di visualizzazioni e streaming online, molti spettacoli nelle stazioni radio israeliane locali e alcune ottime recensioni.
I once was broken to pieces And then was glued with gold dust My structure then became stronger But the cracks filled my heart
Adar is a 24 y/o singer-songwriter from Israel. He writes music in both Hebrew and English in various genres- mainly Indie-Rock and Folk.
He started his way with “Dor Hamabul” band together with his brother with whom he released a debut album, gigged all around Israel, received thousands of views and streams for his songs, local radio features, and even attended season 5 of “The Voice Israel”.
Adar finally decided to start his solo career and is now releasing his third single from his debut album “Gold Dust”, produced by “Idan Katz”.
“What Is This That I Miss” – Adar’s first self-produced single he released two years ago, “Cap Gun- אקדח פיקות” and “How I’m Gonna Make You Mine” – His first two singles from the album, earned thousands of views and streams online, many plays in local Israeli radio stations and some great reviews like these:
“There is something soothing about his voice that you can’t help but get lost in. You can hear a raw honesty in his voice as the song progresses making it a great vehicle for the emotions of the track”
The Other Side Reviews (on How I’m Gonna Make You Mine)
“This song is magical in a way which is difficult to explain, for me, this song is a musical statement of an artist that knows what he wants to do and doesn’t make any compromises on his way. On story short, The potential here is insane”
Amit Malka, Culture Club– Israel
And now, during this complicated era, Adar Is finishing the work on his debut album, and releases his third single – “Gold Dust”. After his previous acoustic folk single, “Gold Dust” reminds us that Adar started his way as a Rock artist.
The song is inspired by the art of “Kintsugi”– the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. A message Adar personifies in his text to human beings.
Adar’s debut album “Gold Dust”, is planned to come out in March.
