2) "Hadar" - London based Israeli singer-songwriter;
Hadar Manor is an Israeli singer-songwriter who came to Britain in 2001.
Her MySpace page tells us that: "She grew up in a little village by the Judas mountains. Her Transylvanian mother insists that gypsies left her on the door step when she was a baby, wrapped in newspaper with the date of June 21st and ever since, that's her official birthday. At 16 she went travelling with a bunch of hippies, who gave her a guitar in exchange for a smile and she started busking with them. When they arrived in Amsterdam, Hadar stopped for a lil' drink and a puff, told the guys she'll meet them in an hour but the air was sweet and the beer was bitter so she stayed for a year.
One day, while singing Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee" a handsome man with a patch on his left eye approached her with beautiful stories about London and pavements of gold and tea parties. Hadar followed him to arrive at the rock in the middle of the north sea. Later on she learned never to believe a man with a patch on his left eye. Saying that, London treated Hadar well, and instead of golden pavements, busking down the tunnels of underground were a sufficient replacement."
On Thursday 21st February 2008 she was crowned "London's Queen of the Underground", after winning thelondonpaper's first "Ear to the Underground" competition, claiming the title of London's busking queen (and a £5,000 prize). Competing against 170 acts she was voted into the grand final along with Chris Dingli, "a classically trained viola player with a modern twist", and there London's residents and visitors voted her their favourite street musician, the Queen of the City's buskers.
As well as busking and playing gigs in London Hadar gained a growing following during 2007/08 performing with other artists including guesting on the Oi Va Voi album and taking to the stage at Glastonbury '07. Since winning the Ear to the Underground competition she has played for London's then Mayor Ken Livingstone and Kevin Spacey, Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis, had a brief visit to No. 10 Downing St., appeared on the ITV South Bank Show with Melvin Bragg and performed on Lucio's evening radio show on Capital 95.8fm. Towards the end of 2008 she toured the UK with Beth Rowley (www.myspace.com/bethrowley) and Vashti (www.myspace.com/vashtimusic).
We will be hearing much, much more from Hadar in 2009.

About the project name:
Hadar literally means "To Honor" or "Glory/Splendor" in Hebrew. The concept of Hadar – pride in and knowledge of Jewish tradition, faith, culture, land, history, strength, pain and peoplehood. Hadar is the need to have pride in Judaism and not allow it to be disgraced and defiled by beating and desecration of Jewish honor. This is the concept that the great Jewish leader Zev Jabotinsky attempted to instill in the oppressed and degraded masses of Eastern Europe 70 years ago. The anti-Semite's hatred and contempt of the Jew is an attempt to degrade us. It is an attempt to instill within the Jew a feeling of inferiority. It is an attempt that, all too often, succeeds in promoting Jewish self-hatred and shame in an attempt to escape one's Jewishness. Hadar is pride. Hadar is self-respect. Hadar is dignity in being a Jew.
