The hometown visit of a Melbourne boy performing in his new band has found its natural partner, joining forces with ZFA’s Habayit – the home of Hebrew language and Israeli culture.

Ari Wenig and Shay Perry

Habayit is delighted to be hosting Israeli musical duo Shay Perry and Ari Wenig, who will be performing in Melbourne for one night only.

The duo, who perform under the name Shayari will share their original and unique music in an intimate setting at Memo Music Hall, St Kilda.

Shayari means ‘poetry’ in Sanskrit – a specific kind of poetry that allows the writer to express his or her deepest feelings in words.

Shay grew up in Ashkelon, Israel; Ari grew up in Melbourne Australia and made Aliyah 3 years ago. After connecting through Facebook, Shay and Ari have been collaborating – writing, performing and recording songs together about their shared and individual stories.

Shayari recently released their first single “Kenut – כנות” and they are in the process of recording their first album.  They practice yoga and meditation, and connect people through their songs and ideas about spirituality, relationships, faith and the power of nature. Their music is both in English and Hebrew.

With Ari on piano, and Shay playing guitar, violin and bansuri flute, the duo’s show is an experience of vulnerability and sensitivity, which allows both the artists and the audience to express and explore their deepest emotions.

Hallely Kimchi, coordinator of Habayit said, “We are excited to be hosting Shayari for what is going to be a fantastic performance. But even more than that, it is amazing to see an Australian oleh return home and share their experiences and talent, in Hebrew, in a performance which is every bit a representation and celebration of Israeli culture.”

Shayari will be performing at a concert sponsored by Habayit and the Zionist Federation of Australia on Thursday 5th of March at Memo Music Hall, 88 Acland St, St Kilda.
