Esther Ofarim performed live on July 26th in the Schuppen 1 in Wedel.

For the first time she and Yoni Rechter sang "Tzipor Shniya" live together on stage.

She also performed a number of songs, which she hadn't sung for quite some time.

It was a wonderful concert with Esther in superb voice and appearing younger than ever!

Two days later she performed in Hasselburg.

Article of the press:

"Mit einer gewissen Unverzagtheit
80 Jahre ist die israelische Sängerin Esther Ofarim jüngst geworden, sie macht auf der Bühne den Eindruck, als könne solch ein Alter nur in Würde und Anmut gelebt werden. Ihr Auftritt vor den Toren Hamburgs ließ vergangene Zeiten lebendig​ werden"
