Asaf Avidan is a folk singer living in Jerusalem. Often labeled the male version of Janis Joplin, Avidan sings with a distinct rasp, indicative of his major influences—Jimi Hendrix, Led Zepplin and Joplin herself. Though he intended to be an animator, Avidan could not resist the lure of the guitar. Avidan and his group—the Mojos—have toured Europe, Israel and the United States, performing to sold out audiences at every stop.
