עפרה חזה / Ofra Haza: 57th birthday
November 19, 2014 at Google in Israel.
Ofra Haza (Hebrew: עפרה חזה, Arabic: عفراء هزاع; born November 19, 1957 – died February 23, 2000) was an Israeli singer, actress and international recording artist. Her voice has been described as a „tender” mezzo-soprano.
Inspired by a love of her Yemenite and Hebrew culture, her music quickly spread to a wider Middle Eastern audience, somehow bridging the divide between Israel and the Arab countries. As her career progressed, Haza was able to switch between traditional and more commercial singing styles without jeopardizing her credibility. Her music fused elements of Eastern and Western instrumentation, orchestration and dance-beat. She became successful in Europe and the Americas; during her singing career, she earned many platinum and gold discs.
