Welcome to Times Will Tell, the weekly podcast from The Times of Israel.
This week, we’re speaking to the Djamchid Sisters, Shay-Li Djamchid and Eden Djamchid, sisters in life and in music, who have been composing, playing and singing together for the last 15 years, since they were teens.
Their new single “B’Yadayim Shelcha” (“In Your Hands”) was recently released as part of their second album, “A Thousand Suns.”
It’s an album that’s been long awaited by local 88FM listeners, as well as their fans around the country.
During the conversation, the two sisters speak about being born in Jerusalem into a musical family. Shay-Li picked up the guitar when she was still in grade school, and began writing songs and music on her own. Her younger sister Eden, only by a year and a half, began learning how to play the cello at the age of five, when she was still in kindergarten.
The two began playing and singing together from their bedrooms in their teens and performing soon followed, with a serious approach to their music from the very start.
This latest collection of songs, say the sisters, reflects where they are in life now, older, wiser, still full of hopes and dreams.
