Discography

Leela's self-productions and discography
The Upsidedown album (2000) was recorded both in Londonl and in Israel once in Hebrew and once in English. It includes 12 live musicians under Leela's musical production.
Upsidedown is a Funky-Rock album that features songs touching a vast spectrum of feelings and issues. Some have funny & sexy lyrics as in the song Ain’t Got Time while others have deep strong lyrics such as in I Might Lose My Mind, or in Grandpa – that was reproduced in 2009 for the album My Naked Ballads

In 2002 Leela's singles Butterfly and So Low were released in their Hebrew version (Haparpar and Kol-kach Namuch). So Low that was later reproduced to its piano version for My Naked Ballads deals with the lowest bottom of depths in relationships while Butterfly deals with the complete opposite, the airy lightness of them.

In 2005 Leela went back to the studio to record the EP Perfect Combination
that uniquely blends Western music with some spicy trills and exotic Eastern instruments. Track four in the EP called What’s in it 4 me- a feminine protest songs was released also in the Miscollection vol.1

E-mail, the third track on Perfect Combination, is especially poignant, giving us an insight into an original exchange of e-mails between Leela and her good friend Joe in London, expressing fears about the daily terrorist threat that hangs over all our heads in our global village into a thought provoking and mesmerizing song.

The song was played on various radio stations and reached a special interview by Yael Dan on GALAZ radio.

Leela was invited to perform E-mail on the well known Gidi Gov’s Laila Gov Night Show on national TV, but refused the condition of translating it into Hebrew since she thought it would be pointless to touch an authentic document like that correspondence was.
By that she denied the TV invitation but stuck loyal to her own creation.

In 2009 Leela recorded the EP My Naked Ballads, an ‘unplugged’ production featuring deeply emotionally sung ballads (in the style of Kate bush, Tori Amos) and accompanied by her own piano and a Baroque recorder.
