Notes Folk Music Of Israel: In the North

This broadcast explores Israel's northern lands which not only boasts extraordinary natural beauty, accented by mountains, valleys and green fields, but is also of historical significance. Archeological studies have found remnants of Jewish settlements thousands of years old. In addition, modern buildings, roads, bridges and an expanding agricultural presence provide a wealth of inspiration for musical expression.
