“La la laaa laaa” :: Yael Naim live session / contest for Aspen show

The lovely French-Tunisian-Israeli songstress Yael Naim (ah, yes — from that commercial … aaand now you’re singing it all day) stopped in at the Frontstage Studios in France at the beginning of this year for an absolutely charming, lighthearted set of acoustic tunes. I’ve been enjoying the casual ukelele vibe of her performance all day. There’s some singing in French and a Britney Spears cover, so yeah — take a listen.

NEW CONTEST:
Yael is currently on tour, swinging through the Belly Up in Aspen on Sunday, October 19th. Colorado peeps, would you like to go? I’ve got a pair of tickets. Leave me a comment, maybe say something nice. It’s still random winners but still you can always say something nice.

  • I didn’t know she was singing in a commercial – I don’t watch TV. What song is it?

    I just mentioned her in one of my blogs – uploaded the youtube video of “Toxic”. She is amazing

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
