The latest project from Israeli-born Baht Rivka Whitten, “My Soul Thirsts for You”, is finished, and it certainly was worth the wait! Its very title reverberates throughout this spontaneous, one-of-a-kind, creative musical journey. While offering a beautifully designed backdrop for prayer and meditation, these unique melodies release your own creativity, allowing you to respond in song, dance, or a heart-cry to God.
This project was brilliantly engineered in a state-of-the-art studio. The lush sounds of ancient middle-eastern strings, flutes, and percussion will draw you into their tapestry of emotion, and Rivka’s rich, prophetic voice blends the sounds of the ages – both old and new. It is literally a voice of one crying in the desert….the vast Negev Desert.

I love music, I always have. I come from a people of rich tradition and deep musical soul. Although I have been singing most of my life, it took me a long time to find my PURPOSE. My first music project, Lazman Hazeh (For Such a Time as This), really just began as a desire to bless my people, Ahm Israel (The Nation of Israel) with encouraging, biblical words in song… ah, a purpose. Not long after, a few amazingly gifted people came alongside and added an even more beautiful sound to what I had envisioned. The end result has FAR exceeded my expectations. Lazman Hazeh has received recognition both here in Israel and all over the world, and has given me more opportunities to travel this beautiful earth than I could have ever imagined.
My latest CD, Tzama Lecha Nafshi (My Soul Thirsts for You) can be described in a few words… spontaneous, ambient, meditative, Holy Spirit filled, desert cry, scripture music. It is a one-of-a-kind Biblical Hebrew music experience (with English translation of course), bringing a unique and fascinating fusion of both the contemporary and the ancient.
Frequent comments I have heard about my voice and music are: powerful, soulful, moved to tears. I don’t tell you all this to toot my own horn — no way! I am honored and privileged to have this gift of music and I take it very seriously. I always strive to sing with my whole heart and soul, whether it’s for an audience of one million…… or just ONE……. Lazman Hazeh (For Such a Time as This).
Exciting News: I am currently working on a third CD and things are moving along! G-d willing, we will release a new CD in 2015. If you think of it, please say a prayer for its completion and consider helping us make more music.
