So I went to a writing workshop with Dana Berger and wrote her an entire album | Israel today


When Michal Dagan attended a writing workshop, she did not imagine that it would end in Berger's album - that she would be responsible for all the songs in it • But that's exactly what happened

Not every day an anonymous woman, who has no experience in writing, gets to write an entire album for a well-known singer like Dana Berger.

But this is what happened to Michal Dagan, who wrote all the lyrics on Berger's new album, "All Love for Good."

It all started with a writing workshop conducted by Berger, in which Dagan participated.

"In February 2020, just before our lives changed, I started conducting a writing workshop in Tel Aviv," says Berger.

Michal came to attend it, having already done my workshop three years earlier. When the workshop ended Michal asked if I could continue with her for private meetings. Because of the corona I had plenty of time, and we started meeting. Guitar and I started composing them.At some point we realized there was an album here.

"We chose music producers and started working. We thought I would sing two or three songs I connect to, and host singers. The intention was to do a cool female project with singers we love, but I couldn't let go, I became possessive and in the end I performed all the songs myself."

Dagan: "It touched my heart that she wanted all the songs, because it's a sign that she connected with me from the deepest place. When she sang my words it was like she was singing from me."

Dagan is generally a graphic designer by training.

"In 2017, I returned to Israel after many years of relocation to Mexico, and I was looking for myself," she says.

"I came across Dana's workshop and attended. Two years later my life was turned upside down. I went through a painful breakup with my partner, I moved to another apartment with the kids, I found myself starting over.

"A strong connection has been made."

"I was overwhelmed with thoughts and feelings and was looking for how to steer it out. I signed up for Dana's workshop again, we kept meeting and it was an amazing process. My texts talk about a very big rift and the growth out of it. The hard things that happen advance us, and in the end it's for the better."

Berger: "I'm very much connected to it, especially lately, in Corona. It's a difficult time, but instead of treating it as something that sucks and knocks down, you can see it as something growing that allows for new opportunities."

Isn't it weird for you to perform songs you did not write?

"Over the years I have been able to compose quite a few songs that I did not write, but this is the first time that it is an entire album that I did not write."

How are you going through the fifth wave?

"There will be a gala performance to mark the release of the new album on March 26 at Zappa Tel Aviv, where we will also host Lehi Lapid. At the same time I continue to run with my acoustic show. There are some company events postponed, but most performances currently take place as usual."
