Eight cello soloists united in an all-cello ensemble for a spectacular showcase concert.

Our cellists are soloists with their own personalities, and at the same time, excellent chamber musicians, which also makes them strong as a group.

All of the works on the program are inspired by a clearly recognizable style, driving rhythms and individual fashion particularly considered for the tonal combination that a group of cellos produce.

As the four elements create the world, those four first class women musicians create a magical, colorful and musical world. Jewish melodies are combined with a variety of ethnic styles from east and west, old and new, traditional and modern.

In their new show, »Genesis«, Eve’s women bring new life into the traditional prayers, Jewish folk tunes and Israeli songs, as Tzur Mishelo, Eshet Chayil, Kol HaOlam Kulo and others. The Band presents new and refreshing  arrangements in different styles such as Jazz, Rock, Balkan, Moroccan, and Middle Eastern.

The band performed with great success all over the world.
