The other night I was watching Taratata on France 4 (TV5 overseas) and for those of you who don't know this show, it is the French music show of all music shows. It's closest equivalent would be the Jools Holland show in the UK . Anyway, it's very popular and showcases all the big names in the music industry worldwide right alongside upcoming artists. It's a funny mix on the show, and I love that Lenny Kravitz walks off stage and 2 seconds later a not so known band starts up. The bands are often asked to co-perform, playing a cover that they both like. Anyway, the other night a particular performance took my breath away. I have not stopped thinking about it and I wanted to share it here with you. It was a cover of The Beetles We Can Work It Out by Israeli singer Noa, and her Palestinian singer/friend Mira Awad.
The energy of these two women is intense and incredibly beautiful, check out the video of the performance that I saw here.
