Ester rada - diving shadow

In 2012 I got to do my first piece of work for Raw Tapes Records, a design for the second album from the Calo wood seires - an ongoing series of releases created by Tel Aviv producer Rejoicer & saxophonist Eyal Talmudi, in which every album is led by a different vocalist, while the two handle the beats. After a successful first release with Japanese singer Yuka they knew exactly who they wanted to be their new vocal lead - Israeli rising Ethiopian soulstress Ester Rada. Ester Rada and Raw Tapes were always a big inspiration for me, so this was an amazing opportunity.
