Aderet: Shalom Monika and all the readers from the beautiful country Israel. :)
Monika: How would you define your music?
Aderet: My music develops all the time, but first of all, it's pop or how some DJs hate to say (hahaha) "commercial". At the outset, it's influenced by a variety of styles with an emphasis on ethnic sounds and electro pop. In the future it will continue to be pop but maybe will change in a way to jazz, classical music or even heavy metal, who knows?!
Monika: When did you first start singing?
Aderet: I started singing as a child at family events and in the kindergarten. I remember that my first show was in the front of strangers when I was 5 years old. My uncle that was a soldier in the IDF took me to his Air Force military base. Few soldiers were cleaning the offices before the weekend, and suddenly I started to sing without preparations and they were throwing some coins to me. It was a wonderful memory. It's important to mention that 3 years later when was 8 years old I wrote and composed songs for the first time.

Aderet: After military service in the IDF, I moved from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, and began voice and dance lessons with a lot of sports. Soon I started to perform as a dancer in clubs and worked day by day as a waitress to earn money for my music career. It's a lot of hard work, and when you do enough rehearsals then it will be much easier on stage.
Monika: Which artists or albums are your inspirations?
Aderet: It's a long long list because music is my breath. First, The Israeli singer Yardena Arazi that influenced me a lot. Also Depeche Mode with the LIVE album "101", Madonna , Roxette, A-Ha, Pet Shop Boys, The Cure, Enya, Elton John, Ofer Nissim, Dana International and nowadays Zedd, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Susan Boyle, Hardwell, Rihaana, Tiesto, Lady Gaga and Loreen.
Monika: Your 2008 album titled “Jewish Girl” was your first album released in English. Why did you decide to switch to that language?
|Live performance at KDAM 2013|
(Pre-Selection Eurovision) with
the song "VICTORY".
Since then, day by day I have focused a lot on doing rehearsals to get much better results in the future and before the new material will come up. I learnt so much and understood that I have so much to learn.
After many years I realized that when you feel comfortable and sexy, so the performance can be awesome and people that watch the show will feel connected. The trends give inspiration but do not dictate to me.
