Musical duo, Witch and the Bear are...
Charlie Kesem (that's me) & Noam Rosenthal (my lovely hubby!).
I sing and write lyrics and Noam (mostly) composes the music and brings it to life with guitar, bass and piano.
Our music takes audiences on a journey through original music, magical stories and folk songs, inspired by the ever-changing seasons and transitions in nature, humanity and time.
