One of Israel’s most popular musicians, Ninet Tayeb, filled NPR’s Washington DC music office with her rock star vibes when she performed a Tiny Desk Concert last Friday.

“Tiny Desk Concerts” is a video series of live concerts hosted by NPR Music at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.

“As I watched one of the most famous entertainers in Israel today here at NPR, I flashed back to a 1976 concert I saw by a not-yet-famous Joan Jett. Ninet has that same fierce and honest conviction, is walking that same path that Jett did and is poised to find notoriety in this country, which she recently began to call home,” said an impressed Boilen.

“Ninet won me over during a small concert at last year’s SXSW. It was early in the day, but she was fully on fire and intense.

She and her potent band have put out five albums and their most recent, Paper Parachute, is the home of the songs she brought to us. It’s filled with a her husky- toned voice and guitar lines straight out of stateside ’70s rock, with a Middle Eastern lean. It’s a winning sound, performed by an unrestrained talent.”

Ninet has released four successful albums in Israel (one of them in English), and has twice won Israel’s Favorite Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards. She has also worked with producer Mike Crossey (who produced her third album, Sympathetic Nervous System), and artists such as Steven Wilson, Gary Lucas, Cyndi Lauper, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Dead Daisies.

Alongside her musical career, Ninet has enjoyed a successful acting career, performing both in movies and the theater. She currently lives in Los Angeles and is married to music producer and guitarist Yosi Mizrachi.
