Biography

Bezalel Raviv/ The Story Of Chaim Yitzak Bezalel

I was born July 21, 1979 in Israel.
I am the youngster of 12 (!) sisters and brothers (six brothers and sisters) and brought up as an orthodox child to a streaked Jewish family in Tiberias, located in the north of Israel.

From infancy, I had known music will play a big role in my life, despite of my background and maybe because of it. At age 10, I became an active member of "Flowers of Jerusalem", Israel's national choir, but due to a dramatic voice transformation I went through less than a year later, I was asked to leave the band.

As a result of that, I started to secretly compose music and write lyrics, expressing my feelings.
After my military service, at age 21, I have decided to spend some time in NYC, a time I now refer to as "my second childhood".

I spent 3 years in NYC, singing in the smallest then bigger clubs and bars around, but it wasn't just enough for me.

At age 26, after arriving in Europe, my first official Single "Into My Life" (Logo Records/Self/SIAE) debuted in Italy on November 2006, and with all the support I got, "Into My Life" had charted The Italian Top20 on January 2007, peaking at number 6, but again, it wasn't just enough for me.

Then my whole face was featured on the cover of Clubbing Magazine, distributed around Europe.

These days, "Good Together", my second Single, is being released specially in Israel and I feel it's just the begining and that I am getting closer to myself a little bit.

Here you could hear Tunisia, the third song to be released first in "Tunisia", then across the 23 deserts in the whole-wide world.

It's all about love,
B

Lyrics

Tunisia

Written By: B.Raviv

Tunisia

When I was a child
I was so naïve
Didn't know a thing
So I used to sing
Then I grew up fast
Hid behind a name
Went into dark places
To kill the blame
To kill the blame
A burning flame
It's not a game
To kill the blame
I'm not afraid
To kill the blame
It's not game
To kill the blame
A burning flame
It's not a game
To kill the blame
I'm not afraid to kill the shame
Nothing about it

I,
I wanna see the ocean so blue
And ride on camels only with you
You remind me of Tunisia

I'll never forget
How you came my way
Always I remember
Feels like yesterday
Laying on the sand
Two hearts made of gold
Braking an old conflict
Like never before
Never before
Never before
Never before
I wanted more
Just wanna see the open shore I'm looking for
Never before
I wanted more
Never before
I wanted more
I wanna see the open shore
There somethin' about it
