Heeyam

Ben Tzur debut album Heeyam (meaning Supreme love in Arabic), was recorded in India, Israel and USA. It was released in 2003, and earned great applause. In the album Heeyam Shye has worked with traditional Sufi Qawwali singers, (Qawwali is a form of ecstatic Muslim devotional music) who have been learning his compositions and poetry, and sung them in Hebrew. From his personal life experiences Ben-Tzur has succeeded to bring his own ancient culture alive into a unique cross cultural work.
