Hillel and Aviva are a husband and wife duo and today's program presents 3 selections performed at concerts and recorded live. They first met in 1946, but did not perform together until 1948, during a visit to the USA. Aviva uses a "tof miriam", a small clay pot covered over in goat skin. Hillel uses a "halil", a shepherd's pipe.
