Fafa Galoure - Debut LP

By
Efrat Cohen

My name is Efrat Cohen. I am a musician, creative director and founder of Fafa Galoure

In 2011, Fafa Galore took on the form of a collaborative duo between Asi Ashkenazi and myself. Together we developed and re-arranged the songs that i wrote and composed.


The songs reveal an internal emotional landscape that exists alongside the external day to day. They expose personal ideals, hopes, processes and inner conflicts which arise when you struggle to be true to yourself despite your ideas about what is expected of you. The musical framework allows for delicate emotions to surface, as in the song “Hero” that deals with the paradoxical nature of feeling enslaved and overwhelmed by demands, whilst affirming to yourself that you are a hero in order to keep trying. Creating harmony between one’s inner world and the outside world has been at the core of my musical journey.



The experience of writing, composing and forming a band enabled me to learn how to create the right conditions, working relationships, time-frames and environment that would nurture and enable the development of Fafa Galoure. I realized that in order to achieve the right results, it is important to allow things to happen over time, despite the flawless line of production demands of our current fast-paced and competitive culture. My goal is to inspire sincere and powerful emotions in my audience, positive or negative….human.

After two and a half years of recording, arranging and editing, i am now entering the crucial mixing and mastering stages of the debut album’s production.

Let’s finish this album together!


Fafa's Story

At the age of 5, i relocated from Israel to London with my family. 

The early exposure to a wide range of musicians had a great impact on me. I was extremely lucky that i got to witness a legendary Queen concert at Wembley Stadium. There i realized the powerful way in which music and performance unifies people and i knew that i wanted to write and sing. Freddy Mercury was a great inspiration as an individual and as an artist. His personality uniquely embodied male and female, a quality that i identify in myself to this day. 

One of my earliest experiences of singing involved leading the girls in my class into songs of prayer every morning. I felt connected to the divine and it sounded like all of our voices merged into one. During the seven years that followed, i sang as a mezzo soprano in the school choir. I was also learning how to play Beethoven’s moonlight sonata on the piano. It was difficult... so i ran a mile!

Now as an adult i can appreciate patience and perseverance.



Fafa Galoure -  the Band

In 2012, Asi Ashkenazi and i recorded a demo with producer, Moshe Baavor. The demo which included vocal and piano renditions of “No Sound” and “Take my hand”, was aired on Israeli radio stations 106 fm and 88fm. 

Since late 2014, Omer Hershman became Fafa Galoure’s Music Producer. Fafa Galore evolved into a band of six musicians with a full, multi- layered sound that combines my original vision with the unique personalities and styles of these talented individuals. Since 2015, the band has been rehearsing, recording and performing live.
