about

Mona is a collection of character portraits, “Christine,” about a washed-up former model encountered at a bar, “String Bean,” inspired by an unknown anorexic teenage pop star, & “Oh God” delving into the depths of addiction, and the of shame it creates. In general, the lyrical repertoire hangs elusively simple words around cryptic stories of heartbreak, longing, and relationships. Musically, Orly Bendavid & her band :The Mona Dahls knit the lyricism of the violin in conversation with the tender and terse cadences of Orly’s own voice. Their music at once evokes the sounds of Parisian cabaret, the Appalachian hill country, and the Middle East.
