According to Wiki: Shye Ben Tzur is an Israeli Qawwali singer who composes qawwalis in Hebrew. He was formerly part of the rock band Sword of Damocles, which he founded. After attending a concert in Jerusalem by the Indian classical musicians Hari Prasad Chaurasia and Zakir Hussain, he became interested in Indian music, which brought him into contact with qawwali. He went to Ajmer in India (the site of the mausoleum of the Sufi saint Moinuddin Chishti), and learnt qawwali from qawwals there. In 2004, he performed at Jahan-e-Khusrau, the prestigious international Sufi music festival held in New Delhi in the spring annually since 2001.
Shye Ben Tzur has two albums to his name: Heeyam and Shoshan. In Heeyam, Shye Ben Tzur worked with traditional qawwals, who learned his compositions and poetry, and sang them in Hebrew. Shoshan was produced by EarthSync in 2009.
