About The Hazelnuts

Download the Hazelnuts' EPK

  • The Hazelnuts are a unique musical phenomenon in the Israeli music scene - sweeping large and varied audiences off and on their feet with the swing fever.

    The Hazelnuts' tight vocal harmony - inspired by the American close-harmony-singing trios of the 1930' are accompanied by their vintage band - an acoustic guitar, double bass, a washboard player and a trumpet. Together, they take us on a journey back to good old New Orleans, along with their own original songs and surprising arrangements for up-to-date hits, the 3 "sisters" being personally responsible for writing and arranging all songs.

    The act has been successfully running since the summer of 2013, shortly releasing their debut EP a year after in April 2014. Performing nonstop and gaining critical acclaim, The Hazelnuts had the honor of performeing in many venues and festivals in Israel and abroad, along with cooperating and being hosted as a vocal trio by great musicians all over the world.

The Hazelnuts are:
Shira Z. Carmel, Yifeat Ziv, Sapir Rosenblatt - Vocals, songs & arrangements //
Elam Friedlander - Double Bass // Dotan Cohen - Guitar // Eli Preminger - Trumpet // Haim Peskoff - Washboard & Drums
