Melita & Isaac
Two of the Bay Area’s premiere children’s performers have joined forces to create inspirational, uplifting music that will speak to parents just as much as it will to kids. Melita and Isaac weave together beautiful harmonies, meaningful lyrics, danceable rhythms and engaging classics to get you singing, moving and ultimately put a big smile on your face. The songs reflect respect for the natural world, a peaceful planet, as well as the Jewish culture and heritage.
Both of their albums, “My Roots Go Down” and “Rising Songs, Turning Tides,” are sure to appeal to lovers of folk music and camp-style sing-alongs, as well as those who appreciate contemplative music and prayer. Melita and Isaac’s music can engage people of any age or generation.
