About the speaker

Ella Ronen

Born and raised in Israel to a European mother and Iranian father, Ella Ronen grew up with a colorful mix of music and culture. She has been singing classical music and writing poems since childhood. It was only later, when discovering the art of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, that she understood she could combine both of these loves: music and poetry. Since then she has been performing in Switzerland and Israel, and released her debut album in the summer of 2014.
