Shemer and Artzi: The next generation
The two famous Israeli musicians each have a son ready to release their first album
"The Helicon record company knows that the more than slight similarity between Ben Artzi (Shlomo Artzi's son) and Ariel Orovitz (Naomi Shemer's son) will lead to inevitable comparisons, and the label wishes to clarify that these are two different artists. Nevertheless, the hand of Udi Anis, in charge of signing Hebrew artists at Helicon, is discernible in both albums," writes Michal Palti in his Ha'aretz profile of the two artists.
