Chava Mirel

Chava Mirel combines rich, luxurious vocals with deep pocket rhythms to bring a new sound to Jewish music. With themes of gratitude, self-acceptance, balance and responsibility for each other, Chava’s songs bring comfort and uplift the spirit.

As early as age 2, Chava has been connecting with multiple generations through performance. An award-winning Jewish composer, she has worked for decades as an educator and Cantorial soloist on both coasts of the US. She also tours internationally, currently as a singer and keyboard player with reggae icon Clinton Fearon. Chava has backed dozens of Jamaican artists, and is devoted to the art and science of groove.

Chava Mirel’s new full-length album, Make The Two Sides Meet, is an eclectic array of groove- based original songs. From liturgical settings to her own inspiring lyrics, she spans some of her most beloved genres – reggae, soul, samba, funk, gospel, hip-hop and West African music.

”Chava Mirel has been singing since she was 2, following in the footsteps of her bass-playing father and her Cantorial soloist mother Julie Mirel.

She has toured with reggae’s Clinton Fearon and recorded a groove album titled “Make the Two Sides Meet.” Her Jewish-penned songs touch the heart, said Craig Weinstein, one of her fans.

“Her music is more than just sound,” Weinstein said. “It touches you deep down in your soul. She can get a room of people of all ages to get up and clap and dance around.””
