As a girl, Reena Katz learned one story about the history of Israel and the people who lived there. As she grew up, an interest in cartography and her father's rare books about Palestine prompted her to dig deeper to understand the landscape of the Middle East.

As a girl, Reena Katz learned one story about the history of Israel and the people who lived there. As she grew up, an interest in cartography and her father's rare books about Palestine prompted her to dig deeper to understand the landscape of the Middle East.

In this impressionistic piece, Katz weaves memories and music into a textured exploration of her cultural heritage.

Can You Say Haa? won the Best New Artist Award in the 2003 Third Coast Festival / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition.
