Jerusalem, 10/11/2012 — Roots-rocker Nachman Fahrner celebrates his love for Judaism and early fifties music with the release of Azamra.

   Consisting of eight self-penned tracks, Nachman shares his feelings about spirituality, converting to Judaism and the holocaust.

   “I wrote these songs over a period of many years and they were originally not meant to be released,” said Nachman. “When someone close to me convinced me to share these songs, I didn't know how the public would react to spiritual songs written in a roadhouse blues and rockabilly style. I was wondering whether Jewish audiences would connect to the music, and if Gentiles would reject the Jewish themes. ”

   But his concerns were unfounded – warm feedback came from people such as rock-historian Al Smith (“excellent singing and guitar-playing”) and Ronnie Weiser of Rollin' Rock and Blasters fame (“Some great stuff here, especially “She Can't Wait To See Me Again” is fantastic!!”). Rabbi Goldfeder commented: “Your music sounds like Elvis meditating in the fields...”.

   Nachman will also be releasing in 2012 his "Early Recordings", volume 1 and volume 2, a remastered collection of rockabilly and jazz demos, including his version of Django Reinhardt's “Montagne Ste Genevieve” which has garnered over 8000 views on Youtube.

   Combining rockabilly, blues and gypsy-jazz into his own fun brand of music, singer/guitarist Nachman Fahrner has been entertaining audiences since 1987. In 1999 he rejected an offer to join the band of jazz-guitar great Patrick Saussois to fulfill his dream of traveling to Israel and converting to Judaism.
