“Broken Hallelujah” | A journey through Leonard Cohen’s poetry, song, and prayers

Part of Leonard Cohen’s songs range between absolute prayers to broken up prayers and meta-physical Jewish hymns.

A Huge poet, Cohen, is one the leading voices in popular music. He wrote and sang about the modern man and his interaction with god, love, and death.

Cohen, masterfully wove humor into the “heavy” topics he sang about , and managed to see thing in an ironic way.

The pieces chosen for this evening are from all stages of Cohen’s life, from his first album through his last.

The acoustic arrangements are rich and complex yet allow one’s own interpretation.
