Notes Music of Israel/Songs for the Sabras/The Karmon Folk Singers and Dancers

It took only a few short years for the Karmon Folk Singers and Dancers to become very popular not only in Israel but also in many other parts of the world especially in the United States. The leader of the group, Jonathan Karmon was brought up in the countryside, in the Kibbutzim which has colored his work. There are 5 selections on this Vistas of Israel program:

1) Hora Na'orim, The Hora Of Youth. 0:50 - 3:01

2) Ma'omroch E'liach, What Do Your Eyes Say?, is a song about a soldier standing guard thinking about his beloved. 3:45 - 6:00

3) Hora Medura, A Campfire Hora. 6:40 - 8:20

4) Shalom La'vo Shabbat, Welcoming The Sabbath. 8:40 - 11:16

5) Bi'ami Ca'hu, Honey From The Rock. 11:43 - 13:14
