In honor of the Aseres Yemei Tshuva, Avraham Ohayon is releasing a track from his long awaited debut album.
Ohayon was born in Morocco in 1985 to a musical family. His father served as a cantor in the Jewish community in Morocco and at the tender age of four Avraham starting to sing with him.
As a child, he appeared as a soloist at the Kolot Casablanca, a choir of young Moroccan Jews. “I grew up in Casablanca, and learned Talmud Torah (Yeshiva Neve Shalom) close to the Chabad community, and all my childhood I always felt connected to the music community,” he said.
At 18, he left with his family to France where he learned in yeshiva until his marriage in 2009. In 2010 Ohayon contended the international “Jewish Star” singing competition where he succeeded as runner up beating out hundreds of competitors.
Immediately after winning the second place, Ohayon released his debut single, “Haleluka” and went on to perform together with Avraham Fried in his hometown in France in 2011, as well as opening and singing with Yaakov Shwekey later that year.
The song entitled “Teka” was composed by veteran composer Yitzy Waldner with arrangements by Shai Barak. The song is being released with a moving music video which was filmed in Israel.
