Talking to Alma Zohar is almost like getting into a time machine and nipping back to an era that was more innocent, and somehow cleaner, when artists were less driven by financial gain. That may be just a rose-tinted nostalgic view of the way things were – and they do say “nostalgia ain’t what it used to be,” don’t they? – but the 38-year-old singer-songwriter really isn’t after the big bucks.
That said, she has just put out her fourth album in seven years, with the release of a children’s CD called Pelleh (Wonder).
“That’s not bad going,” she admits. “And I’ve only been in the profession seven years.”
