All About B'Nei Ha'Or
Children of the Light (B'nei Ha'Or in Hebrew) is a musical duo that was formed in 2010 by Tamrah Alexander and Natasha Kraus-Reynolds. The two met at Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue where Natasha was then praise and worship leader. Tamrah became inspired by Natasha's voice, and Natasha by Tamrah's skill on the piano and guitar--Soon after Tamrah joined the praise and worship team at Brit Ahm, the two were co-writing and recording music together. Their two distinctly different styles and backgrounds create a very unique genre within the Messianic Hebrew Roots movement. Natasha was born and raised in Panama and adds Sephardic and Alt. Rock influences, while Tamrah adds Classical and Folk influences to the tunes.
As mentioned previously, Natasha grew up in Panama, while spending years in the US during periods of Social and Political unrest. Her parents, Rabbi and Rebitzen Kraus lead a Messianic Jewish Congregation in Panama and are very active in ministry in the Hispanic community. Natasha and her brother Ricardo, had their start in music ministry while leading music for their parents congregation. Aside from singing, writing music, and playing guitar, Natasha's background is in Industrial Engineering. She now lives in Florida with her husband and three children.
Tamrah grew up in the Northcentral part of the US, and has been writing music since she can remember. She started taking piano lessons at age 12, and by the time she graduated high school, had earned a piano scholarship to study music theory and composition at a University of Wisconsin. While in college, Tamrah joined a folk-rock band and gigged for extra money. She also spent time recording her music in the UK and was signed by a German-based record label. However, soon after this, Tamrah decided that her music would take a different direction.
Both Tamrah and Natasha feel that their gifts were given by G-d for a reason and should be used to glorify Yeshua and to lead people to Him, both Jew and non-Jew alike. Tamrah now leads music at Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue, and Natasha leads worship and sings within the community. Tamrah arranges, records, produces and sings, while Natasha leads with amazingly powerful and commanding vocals.
We invite you to join us for praise and worship, be blessed by the music G-d has given us, and be a part of our family. We are all Mishpacha in Yeshua so let's celebrate together!
