Esther "Etti" Ankri is a leading Israeli singer-songwriter. She is a former Female Singer of the Year in Israel, and has also performed in the United States, England, and India. Ankri has been called a "rock genius", the "poet of Israeli spirituality," and "the contemporary voice of... Israel". Ankri's debut album, I Can See It in Your Eyes (1990), reached double platinum status in Israel, where it sold over 90,000 copies. Her six additional albums include the most recent, Beshirei Rabbi Yehuda Halevi, which sets the poems of poet Yehuda Halevi to music. Ben Shalev of Haaretz described the music as "beautiful", writing "she sings wonderfully. Her voice is clear and precise, radiating vulnerability and self-confidence in equal measure." Ankri’s songs have also been featured globally in such collections as “Putumayo Presents Israel” a collection put out by Manhattan-based Putumayo, which specializes in world music collections.
