Get your dancing shoes on... Following the success of 'Dovid Hamelech', Eli Marcus is back with a new CD titled 'Energy'. Non stop dance music collected from some of our favorite songs of today and yesterday. Music arranged and conducted by Yoni Eliav from Israel, featuring top Israeli musicians Dor Assaraf and Dudi Setter.
Why this album instead of another original album?
“If you have had the pleasure of hearing Eli at a wedding there are a few words that would come to mind” says Mendy Friedman, producer and project manager. “Perhaps voice, tone, pitch etc. One word that I think is so important that sets Eli apart is Energy, continued Friedman. "He is able to distinctively enhance and energize what we already know and love."
How did you come to choose these particular songs?
"We initially set out to collect a wide ranging selection of songs covering different genres and eras", says Eli. "By having the three of us, Yoni, Mendy, and myself, go through the process and make the selections together, I believe we came out with a beautiful collection. On a side note, bringing production in to the modern era, almost all communication for the entire project was done over email and WhatsApp. For me that is the coolest part of the whole thing."
“We are so grateful to Hashem for giving us these gifts and for making it possible for us to share them with whomever we can. We hope to bring some of that ‘dance-floor-wedding’ energy to the speakers of your home, car, or office."
