Notes Folk Music Of Israel: Folk Dances

The Israeli Folk Dance Orchestra perform four Israeli dances. Although many Israeli dances originated in Eastern Europe, a distinctly Israeli rhythm and spirit is developing.

1) Hanaavah Babawnot (In Praise Of The Fairest of Maidens). 1:40 - 3:59

2) M'cholHanoar (The Dance of Youth) is sung by Rachel Hadas. It combines a processional dance and a couple’s dance to celebrates the spirit of youth. 4:38 - 6:37

3) B'at Harim (Daughter of the Hills) is a song of love to the city of Haifa located on the slopes of Mt Carmel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Rachel Hadas and Theodore Bikel join in singing while A'matai Ne’eman, composer, conducts. 7:15 - 9:54

4) Michol Hagat (Dance Of The Wine Press) was composed by Eishel Ha'Aron. 10:20 - 12:41
