On every journey comes a moment where you stop, look around, and listen to what is inside you. There are no rules to these moments. They come and go without our control. One of these moments happened to the Israeli-born mezzo soprano Na'ama Goldman after deciding to put down roots in Berlin. Constantly traveling the world as an opera singer, why was it Berlin of all places? The city from which her family was deported? Music was where she found answers. Mahler, Korngold, and Weill inspired her to look at her life in a different way. The music of Engel carried with it the sounds of distant memories. Argov and Bat offered new perspectives on her homeland. The discovery of the song Elei Tashuv by Sonnenschein, which is dedicated to her grandmother, connected she to her heritage. The Kaddisch by Ravel reminded her of the power of being a woman, by singing this prayer traditionally allowed only for men. When brought together on a CD album, the songs connect with each other. Their music captures a moment in a journey through a multitude of expressions. They speak of their own heritage, their own legacy. Praised as a superb and impeccable singer with a gripping presence on stage, Israeli-born Na'ama Goldman regularly interprets a rich selection of leading roles on international stages. She gained outstanding audience and critical acclaim in 2012 when she stepped in at the last minute to play the title role in Carmen at the Masada Opera Festival of The Israeli Opera, while still a member of their Meitar Opera Studio.
