Notes Songs Of Israel/The Dudaim

The Dudaim, a duo, is one of the most popular groups in the Israeli folk song branch of music. One member of the duo was in the Israeli armed forces and the other was a serious student of music and both happened to meet at a party they were attending one evening. They were asked to sing together and the "rest is history" as has been said. There are 5 selections on this Vistas of Israel program:

1) Etz Harimon, The Pomegranate Tree, describes the beauty of love as symbolized by this particular tree with its beautiful aroma. 1:58 - 4:07

2) Bom Selah D'ber Sheba, is a song about the new railway to Ber Sheba traveling through the desert and giving fright to a caravan of camels. 5:11 - 7:49

4) Devka Ha'bir, is another Hora and is about a soldier on horseback and his happiness on seeing his loved one. 10:45 - 12:05
