Alon Farber, Hagiga – Israeli Song (Spotify)

“You certainly enjoy listening and delving into every note, rhythm and Jazz melody. Those magic vocals make the composition very original and, most importantly, memorable. Music that leads the listener on the endless expanses of its positive vibrations.”

“Безусловно наслаждаешься прослушиванием, вникая в каждую ноту, ритм и мелодию джаза. Волшебный вокал делает эту композицию весьма оригинальной и, что самое важное, запоминающейся. Музыка сама ведёт своего слушателя по бескрайним просторам своих позитивных вибраций.”

"Israeli Song" was written and arranged by Oded Meir for the Alon Farber Hagiga and features singer Sarai Zak-Levi

This tune really sounds like an Israeli folk song, but it goes to unexpected directions that highlights the different influences on Israeli music, like the influence of Coltrane sound and Afro-Cuban music
