Stomaching the bell

Maya Johanna is not exactly a stranger to the music scene here, as Jacob’s Ladder Festival regulars will know. The 28-year-old has been performing covers of icons of the Sixties, the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, for some time, often at the side of veteran guitarist and harmonica player Shai Tochner. And she gained national exposure a couple of years back when she put in a highly creditable appearance on The Voice television talent show, with a stirring rendition of Mitchell’s “River,” which got three of the four members of the jury to hit the seat revolver button. Now she is ready to strut her own stuff and will mark the release of her English language debut album, Bells in Our Stomachs , at HaEzor Club in Tel Aviv on August 22, at 10 p.m.
