The best kept secret in music


"The Vanguard"

“Beyond the intrinsic value of the songs themselves,we discovered Ilana to be first and foremost a singer who combines beauty, power and tremendous depth in her astonishing voice… It is a performance of the highest quality. An incredible show with a vital tempo – all the lyrics and underlying sentiments ring true”.
Carlos Tura ,”The Vanguard” 29.10.2000

“Ilana Eliya is the proof that one does not have to speak Kurdish to realize that there is a God and that she is a Woman. Her rare voice places her among the top Israeli vocalists.”
Shosh Mula “Kol Ha-ir” January 10, 1997

“If you want to listen to two good concerts, go listen to Ilana Eliya twice. All others seem like roulette gambling. Ask Ilana Eliya to pick stars for you with her voice and she will give you the moon as a bonus.”
Erez Tikolsker, “Ha-ir” July 26, 1996

“We have here one of the greatest voices ever heard in Israel. A great voice is not just decibels or ‘beauty’ in the decorative sense of the word… a great voice is always absolutely individualistic and daring in its uniqueness.”
Ariel Hirschfeld, “Haarez” March 21, 1997

Ilana Eliya - An Ethno Classic singing
Ilana Eliya's artistry entwines old traditions from the mountains of Kurdistan and local, Israeli traditions. Eliya's intricate identity, her deep bonds to the kurd tradition kept by her father, the cantor, and her equally strong ties to the Hebrew language and to contemporery Hebrew poetry created an extraordinary echo in her musical - vocal presence. It rendered Eliya's unique, lucid, piersing voice a rare power of exspression.
Ilana sings in Kurdish, Hebrew and Arabic. She performs in Ethnic-World, Israeli and Jewish festivals around the world. Perfomed in England, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the U.S. and more.
Collaborated with numerous artists : Mark Kopitman, a classical modern music composer,The Yellow Submarin Jazz Ensamble, Avi Balleli and The Revenge Of The Tractor, Berry Saharof and more.
