Tamar Aphek, the mysterious goddess of sharp
guitar riffs and enchanting songs is akin to
artists that shatter expectations – balancing
elegance and brutality, strength and fragility,
ferocious rock and sweet melody. These forces
resound through Tamar and her band's live
performances. Tamar’s music is direct.
One minute she’ll whisper in your ear and the
other minute she will slam her ruthless guitar
into your face.
Tamar Aphek first came to prominence as the
singer/guitar player of bands -“Carusella”,
"Shoshana”, which were both known for turning
every rock venue into a crime scene of volume,
and ruthless energy. In her solo act Tamar is
accompanied by a rock trio that flirts with Jazz
and psychedelic sounds, and presents a shape-shifting
collection of electric songs that carry raw
intensity wrapped in a mesmerising performance.
In 2016 Tamar’s songs were integrated into Asaph
Polonsky’s feature “One week and a day” which won
the Gan Foundation award at the Cannes film festival
as well as 7 awards at the Jerusalem Film festival.
"A magnetic stage presence. There was a decent amount of hair flicking and head bobbing, but that wasn’t the sole reason why she was good. On top of some pretty intense guitar chords her voice carried out beautifully.”
"Tamar Aphek's score, a combination of modern percussion and more classical rhythms,musically evokes the imbalance and longing for a return to normal that the characters are feeling and working on.”
