Here’s one audience member’s comments after experiencing The Kadima Band in concert at Wellesley College:

“First of all, Sunday evening was pure JOY!  The band, the talent of all of them, the versatility of the musicians, all perfection!  And the joy you emanate when you sing (and so adorably dance), is so palpable!!  Do you know how electrical is the joyousness you transmit?  And do you know the magic we in the audience truly experienced in listening and watching?  Your voice is so beautiful.”
