Rami Levin

Born: July 22nd, 1956, Tel Aviv (Israel)
Nationality: Israeli

Jazz pianist, arranger, and producer Rami Levin studied at the Rubin Academy of Music, Tel Aviv, and the Berklee College of Music, Boston Mass. He composed music for television programmes and was the musical director of several festivals in Israel. He leads his own sextet of musicians. Levin has been a teacher of piano, ensembles, arranging, ear training, and harmony at the Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music in Ramat Hasharon (Tel Aviv); moreover, he leads the piano department.

Rami Levin arranged and conducted the Israeli entry in the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest, held in Zagreb: ‘Shara barechovot’, performed by Rita. It is an atypical Israeli entry – no up-tempo song, but a dramatic ballad. It was written by Tzurya Lahav and Rami Kleinstein and was much underestimated by the European juries, who condemned it to an eighteenth position.

In due course, a more extensive biography of Rami Levin will be published on this website
