Five years after he last performed here, one of the most important musicians in the world is coming to Israel for a show that is considered one of the best shows ever.
Asaf Levanon, who saw him about a month ago in Berlin, wrote as follows: "Kyiv gives head and gives rock. Frantic and restless. Stores energy and then releases it with a skilled hand, in a burst and swing. Functions as a true drama artist, but does not let us forget for a moment that he is also a rare and one-off musician , one who every time gives the maximum to his audience. And the audience, for its part, gives itself completely to him and responds enthusiastically to every gesture he demonstrates."
