Yid Vid: Yael Naim May Be Big on TV, But Hadar Manor Is Queen of the Tube

What is it with young Israeli singer-songwriters making great music in Europe?

First, we saw the ascent of 30-year-old Yael Naim, the Paris-based songstress who became suddenly famous after her beautiful single “New Soul” was used in an Apple commercial. Now, across the Channel, another young Israeli is getting a bit of attention of her own. Hadar Manor, a 26-year-old not too many years out of the IDF, was recently named “Busker Queen of London’s Underground.”

While Manor’s YouTube video views aren’t anywhere near Naim numbers yet (i.e. millions), I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear more from this young singer who’s already garnering raves in Britain.

Watch Manor’s (prophetic?) “Queen of the Underground” in which she showcases her song-writing skills (and apparent affinity for kaffiyehs):
