The theme of the festival is the unique ‘Piano Hosts’ aspect, in which some of the top local musicians are paired in creative matchups to perform their work in a piano-based setting. Among this year’s highlights will be the opening event, a celebration of Shumlik Krause’s music featuring Shlomi Shaban, Rona Kenan, Assaf Amdursky, Geva Alon and others. In unique duos, Moshe Peretz will host Ohad Hitman, the late Uzi’s nephew, Dikla pairs up with Dana Berger, and Danny Sanderson puts down the guitar to accompany himself on piano.

Quami to open for Linkin Park

Local hard rocking, hip hop outfit Quami and the Halvot have been hand-picked by Linkin Park to open up their show on November 15 at Hayarkon Park in Tel Aviv.

Promoter Shuki Weiss sent the American metal band dozens of submissions by Israeli artists vying for the honor, and the members chose the eclectic MC Quami, the host of the popular Galgalatz radio show Haketze, and his band for the coveted warm up spot.

“The Halvot and I are in the middle of very active time, and we’re really happy to have been picked,” said Quami adding that the group has recruited the vocalist of local metal band Betzefer, Avital Tamir, to put in a guest appearance with them. Quami and the Halvot have just released a new single recorded with Rami Fortis, “Squeeze Me,” which is garnering a lot of local airplay. Their second album, following their 2007 debut, is slated to be released soon.
