Nice to meet you
“Yuval Dayan, 25, lives in Ramat Hasharon, is a musician and creator.”
My home is my fortress
“My privacy will happen to me, but many times I choose to give it up. I believe that the more I keep my privacy the better for me, but when you write songs, there is a certain level where you have to be exposed. Although people do not know exactly where I live and what my house looks like. “But they know what’s going on in my heart. I write in my songs about very personal things, and that is in my opinion the main acquaintance that should exist between an artist and his audience.” I already know how to proceed. For example, if I want to make an appointment that is a little more personal, I know that if I hold it in a public place, it will not be so successful, so there is a good chance that I will do it at home. At the same time, it is clear that I go out, turn around, etc. My relationship with the audience is very important to me. Bottom line, I write songs to do good to people, so when people tell me where my songs meet them and what they do to them, there is nothing more fulfilling than that. “
Longing for longing
“When they announced the limitations of the gatherings at first it was a real shock for me. My profession is around the clock, and suddenly a huge hole in my schedule opened up for me. I remained the same person, with the same energies, but without work. At the same time, when I realized that all the shows were canceled, my biggest concern was for the people who work with me. Our diary was full, armored for a few months in advance, and no one watched this thing.
“On an economic and mental level, it hurt people who work with me, some of whom just became parents. In general, the new situation hurt countless people. My brother, for example, has restaurants in Ashdod, and he was very hurt by what happened. Another thing that bothered me was that many people treat the world of culture. “It’s just a luxury. Some people think that in our work we take time off, but the truth is that there are people behind me who work very hard, day and night, to make my performances worthy. And beyond that, I can say that I really missed going back to work.”
The secret of simple things
“On the other hand, and this is also important to say, personally I felt I needed a rest, and in that sense the corona came to me bull in time. Like I said, from the age of 17 I was on stage, and did not stop for a second, although sometimes I felt the stop was quite necessary. Pause, stop for a moment, because I saw that my colleagues do not stop.I may not look like a person like that, but I think quite a bit where I am in relation to others, what my powers and achievements, and often feel insatiable.What happened thanks to the corona is that I finally stopped Breathing, I looked back, and saw that thank God I have plenty.
“Looking back on what I have provided to date has been very gratifying, and has motivated me to continue to create. In recent months I have worked a lot. I wrote, composed, played, studied. For me it was a very growing period. There is a parable I like, which speaks at first glance Dead, weak, on which they have fallen and of course there is nothing to talk about fruit, but the truth is that they are fully evolving.
“We as artists also need to think from time to time what we want to say, what to tell, how to reinvent ourselves. Beyond that, I also put a lot of thought into the sequence of events, what will happen when it all ends, so I grew very much in that time. , I had a very strong feeling that I did not need much to be good. That a little too great. Before the Corona I felt I needed to change the equipment in the studio. I believed it would help me write better songs.
“From there the closure started, the livelihood stopped, and I did not buy new equipment. And during this period I realized that the quality of my songs does not depend on this or that new equipment. That is not what will help me get better songs out of myself. In one of the songs I wrote there is a line that says: ‘ “I’m asking for a small house, a garden for the children, believe me I’m happy. ‘I’m so happy about this lesson.
A gift from heaven
“The process of creating songs is a fascinating thing. A process that has no formula. You can sit for hours and nothing comes out, and sometimes a song just comes to you effortlessly. Still, you have to work hard, make an effort and practice writing the songs. But even when I try and succeed, When it comes to me easily, I know that every song that comes to me is a gift from heaven. Anyone who has written a song that he kicks off knows that it is a very exciting event. It is simply impossible to explain how much, any explanation will just flatten the experience. You just hear the song over and over again all day “When that happens, I feel a pipe through which they decided to bring this song down to the world, and I try to live in this consciousness.”
“Sometimes young singers consult with me about music reality shows, whether it’s worth going to, etc. You used to have to plow the land length and breadth, and today reality is an amazing platform that jumps you, but this genre also has drawbacks of course.
“At the same time, anyone who thinks it will save them the hard work – is greatly mistaken. Being an artist is not just knowing from what angle to be photographed for Instagram. Standing on stage is not a hobby. It is a must. It is a big responsibility. Some girls scream at home the content I create .
“For that matter, if I hear about a case of a girl being boycotted, my heart goes out to her and I feel that as an artist in Israel I have the place to influence her. And the same goes for writing songs. Of course there is room for spontaneous inspiration, but before putting out a song you have to make sure every word “And beyond the internal work, there is also a lot of work on the external. It is also part of the matter. What is important is to know that the internal work is the main thing. It is important to pay attention to what is emphasized, what is more important.”
“Modesty is first and foremost an internal thing, but external modesty is also very important to me, so I try to be modest. There are several reasons for this, and one of them is that I feel exposed because of the songs I write, which are very personal, so I feel the need not to reveal things. Beyond that, I think modest dress respects the person.
“Rachel Hochman, my voice development teacher, once told me that I would never see her in revealing attire, because she respects herself, and I received a great lesson from her in this matter. In addition, I very much connect to the phrase ‘there is no blessing but nothing hidden from the eye.’ “And yes – my strengthening in keeping the commandments is also related to that. I think God instructs us to dress modestly, and it is important for me to do so.”
How good Saturday is
“Although I have strengthened my observance in recent years, tradition is a matter that is not foreign to me. My parents came from religious families, I have a lot of religious relatives, and I come from a traditional Moroccan family. We have always had kiddush, holidays, and in general – my family has a lot. Respect for Judaism. I remember going to Baba Sally’s grave many times, we would do barbecues there, etc. Not very recently, I remember it now with a smile, a friend who studied with me in first grade told me that I always wrote ‘BSD’.
“At the age of 17, when I started to get famous, I felt I wanted to get stronger, and among other things I started to keep Shabbat. It made me very well. Suddenly I got quiet in life. This stop is so blessed. I never worked on Shabbat, but when you are completely Shabbat keeper – there are many More space for quiet and contemplation. At first it was hard for me to stop playing on Saturday, but then I realized it’s part of the job, and that I do not want to do things related to work on Saturday. “My career is important to me, but not only it is important. It has its place, and there is also room for more things. For example, I want to give a very significant place to the house with the help of God Akim. I want to be a mother who is involved in the lives of her children, who puts the house first. “
Your mother’s teaching
“Beyond the Sabbath, keeping the commandments has helped me with a lot of other things. For example, we are constantly taught what to do when we fall. We are told that we can and should get up from crises, that descent is the purpose of ascension, but no one tells you what happens when you succeed.
“My parents work regular jobs, until I started performing I did not know anyone in the field, and at first I did not know how to deal with what was happening to me. Such a reality of career etc. brings a lot of challenges, and I see how in the Torah there are great advice and guidance for things I go through. You learn how not to be jealous, why it’s not good to be jealous, you learn that everything happens under private and precise supervision, how important it is to put the family at the center, how to properly deal with abundance, and in general – how to be a better person. Wisdom and beauty.
“I once saw an interview with Eviatar Banai, I appreciate him as an artist and love interviews, and he said something I was very connected to. He said that it is not a shame to be a person who believes that this world needs order. To believe that there is a Creator for the world. Faith. Faith in God and keeping the commandments do me good, and I feel that there are many tools in the Torah that help me deal with life, so I wanted to get more and more of them. And that I did not make too sharp a transition in life, because Judaism has always been there This is going to happen. “
Go to me my passion
“Prayer and study are important things for me. I try very hard to do spiritual work. I am very sensitive, and you could say that I am in daily contact with God. In this context, these days are very special. It is amazing to me that there is a reality that can be corrected. In the physical world, it is said.” On the other hand, in the spiritual world, the Torah says that one does not always have to pay. There is a concept of repentance. There is forgiveness, erasure. Of course when it comes to prayers, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this is the climax. “Regarding Torah study, the doctrine of Hasidism opens my heart the most, and I connect especially with Rabbi Kook and Rabbi Nachman. I live in the knowledge that there is a spiritual reality in the world, and that it is very important and worth investing in.”
