on a personal quote...
welcome to my website, I am glad to introduce you to my art as a vocalist, composer, arranger and band leader.
music is a magic bridge that can connect people and worlds together, what I love in particular is how the human voice reveals one story among many about our mankind. I find it as one of the most colorful instruments that exists.
As an artist, I feel the urge to reflect and to tell the stories I encounter in my way.
Like a painter on the canvas, I try to capture what I feel and see around me in a moment of sound.
for me, Jazz is an ever-evolving art form. Without the influences that shaped it, it would have been different from how you and me know it today. In my life I learnt to embrace changes. And in my writing, I learnt to expect the unexpected.
For me music is a journey and a place, it is a bridge between people and cultures. It will be my honor to have you there with us :)
peace and love.

"Not long ago a friend of mine who has been working as a music professional for decades, suggested that it may be a good idea to get rid of all musical genre names and just call music MUSIC. Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis made comments in the past that point in that direction as well. I thought of this during the first listening session I devoted to Hila’s debut album. I heard so much originality combined with a thorough knowledge of various musical traditions that labelling seems a waste of time. Her highly personal approach in compositions and lyrics allow you to enter her musical world as a welcomed guest, or rather, friend. She does not make any useless attempts to hide certain influences: including these in her own artistic concept feels more as a respectful tribute. What I also like is that within her obvious control of how her music should sound, she allows her fellow musicians, all great players, lots of space to express their class and understanding of Hila’s concept. The production is personal, crisp, intimate but also strong. A bit like the combination she describes in Song For a Butterfly. Strangers In My Dreams is full of beautiful paradoxes: for instance, it has a timeless quality to it but also very much refers to the times we currently live in. This makes Hila a powerful figure in the music world and I am sure her voice and vibe will touch the hearts of many open minded listeners. Speaking of open minds: I wish the late George Duke could have heard the title song because I am convinced he would have included it in his own repertoire right away.
Hila’s debut: delightful in many ways!"
