A violinist and singer-songwriter, Michael Greilsammer blends Irish, reggae and rock music. His first album, Je me reveille, was released by a major French label. On his second album, B Paris, Michael collaborated with his vocalist wife Shimrit. Greilsammer has been a supporting act for international artists including Macy Gray and Ziggy Marley. In 2009, his first single, Ishti Hayekara, topped the Israeli charts.

The Zelikovitz Centre is hosting Michael Greilsammer as a visiting artist this winter, courtesy of the Schusterman Visiting Artists Program. This program brings Israeli artists to North American colleges and universities for the purpose of offering audiences the opportunity to engage with contemporary Israeli culture.
