Shahaf will be part of the parade, marching with “Dayenu”, as well as performing at the Laneway party at Mardi Gras on Saturday night. The Israeli Embassy has assisted financially towards the cost of bringing Moran to Sydney for the Mardi Gras.

24 year old Shahaf Moran, Tel-Aviv’s hottest rising DJ/Producer, has been making his name in the world of pop and house music remixing many of the largest names in music. Shahaf’s impressive portfolio of remixes has established him as a leader in crafting hit remixes for some of the largest musical stars and has won him worldwide recognition and global popularity online.

In September of 2012 his remix of Rihanna’s worldwide hit “Diamonds” quickly reached a million views on Youtube and is currently edging 3 million views, evidence of Moran’s ever growing international fan base.

This year Shahaf has been commissioned to do Official Remixes for a handful of international record labels, including Blanco y Negro in Spain, Media Pro in Romania and Pop The Record in Israel. Shahaf is the Resident DJ for France’s “Revolution Paris,” the metropolis’s not-to-be-missed party at the historic Olympia, an historic music hall founded in 1888 by Joseph Oller, the creator of the Moulin Rouge, which has hosted anyone and everyone in the pop and rock hall of fame. He is also resident DJ for “nu-nu-nu” Tel-Aviv, where he plays his favourite remixes, house and electro.

President of Dayenu Jo Cohen told J-Wire: “This is the 14th anniversary of Dayenu marching in the Mardi Gras Parade. We have 100 people joining us in 2014 including Shahaf Moran.

Our theme this year is ‘Love’ – ‘Ahava’, Dayenu will say this year ‘Love, Ahava, Love Each other’. This encompasses all facets of the idea. Love doesn’t discriminate – it crosses all boundaries and brings us all together. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude towards each other, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness. Love thy neighbour as thyself.

The production for this year’s parade has been an incredible journey. For the first time ever we have formed a special Dayenu Mardi Gras committee group which consists mainly of younger members. They have injected a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm and I am really excited to share this parade alongside such talented youth.”
