Israeli Rock Star delivers a beautiful rendition of a song that’s all over the news this year as Woodstock celebrates its 50th Anniversary.   50 years later, the iconic festival still resonates and folks around the world recognize the impact it has in pop culture today.

Ninet Tayeb is an artist, not only a singer/songwriter/musician but also an acclaimed actress from Israel who’s taken up residency in Los Angeles.

Rock ’n’ Roll is in her blood. She has six albums under her belt. The first single “Self Destructive Mind” from her upcoming third English –speaking LP is out now.

The exclusive world premiere of “Woodstock” is released today. (

Of the song, Ninet says: "At the beginning, I got nervous singing this one as the original song and performance is so pure and timeless. I was trying to bring my whole being into it.

To me Woodstock is a place in time where I go back to as I feel I’ve been there already at the first one, in a different lifetime, hanging out with Janis backstage.”

Ninet Tayeb is also scheduled to perform as part of the Woodstock 50 Line-Up this Summer.

"I Can’t tell you how excited I am to take part in such a historical event, be on one stage with all those beautiful musicians and bring some glittering vibes into this universe of love. To be a part of the most influential festival of all time is a really incredible thing for me and my band.”

The track's producer and video director Joseph E-Shine shares his thoughts.

"We put a lot of thinking to the arrangement of this one since it’s such an iconic Joni Mitchell song that was followed by a timeless Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Cover.

We wanted to give the listeners a pure rock’n’roll spirit experience, as if they’re watching a live performance and mix them with modern synths and beats to enhance the emotional arc of the song.

On the video side, Ninet really wanted the live energy of the band on screen so we went to a dirty club in Tel-Aviv and just went for it, during the process of making it we made sure to give the audience the sub story in Mitchell’s lyrics.”
