Keren Ann is the next guest in veteran radio rock and pop DJ Yoav Kutner’s long-running Sippurim Bemono (“Stories in Mono”) interview series at Beit Avi Chai in Jerusalem. The session will take place Monday at 9 p.m.

Kutner is a seasoned interviewer, but he may have his work cut out for him with Keren Ann. The Israeli-born singer-songwriter seems to have quite a few personas, and multilayered cultural baggage. Forty-year-old Keren Ann was born in Caesarea, but the family moved to the Netherlands when she was small. Her parents are Russian and Dutch-Javanese, and she lived in the Netherlands until the age of 11, when her family moved to France. For the last few years she has divided her time between Israel, Paris and New York. Clearly the artist has several strings to her bow.
