Asaf Avidan is an Israeli singer- songwriter, one of the few Israeli musicians to succeed abroad.

Avidan (born 1980) is the front man of Asaf Avidan & the Mojos, an Israeli folk rock band that he established in 2006 in Jerusalem. The band released three albums, The Reckoning in 2008, Poor Boy / Lucky Man in 2009 and Through the Gale in 2010. In 2012, the band took a break so that Avidan could concentrate on a solo career. That same year he released Avidan in a Boxan acoustic live album which covers older songs by him. In 2013, he launched his solo studio album Different Pulses.

Avidan performs in English, and his unique voice and musical style made him a successful international artist.

Here are some of his songs. Enjoy and feel free to tell me what you think by commenting below!
