Giant Step is proud to present the exclusive U.S. debut show of Israeli Ethiopian singer Ester Rada. Featured on every possible TV and radio show in Israel, the up-and-coming Soul-Funk-Jazz-Groove-RnB star has turned heads with Life Happens, her self written solo EP produced by Kutiman (Thru-You) and Sabbo (Soulico). With influences including Nina Simone, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, Rada brings a new voice to soul that is ready to be discovered by music fans in the United States.

Ester Rada’s cross-cultural sound is a deep reflection of the Israeli born Ethiopian’s heritage. Growing up in a highly religious Jewish family in one of the roughest neighborhoods in Tel Aviv, Rada was driven to change her way of life and fulfill her dream of creating music.

Telavivian states: "Ester Rada’s music hit me right in the face, leaving me stunned and smiling like a kid in toystore. Her cross-cultural sound is on one hand, a deep reflection of the Israeli born Ethiopian’s heritage, and on the other, influenced by the esthetics of both classical and new soul. You can trace back her pain, pride and joy in her music, while she’s following the giant steps made by Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone, and letting her soul out with rare confident voice and appeal. To see her performing live, is in lack of other words, magical."
