Notes Singing on the Road

Hiking is a popular Israeli sport and children start doing this form of recreation at a very early age. And as they hike, they sing. At the beginning of Spring there is an annual march from the middle of the Negev Desert to the desert town of Ber Scheva (check spelling), a distance of 30 miles. There are 6 selections on this Vistas of Israel program:

1) Pom Pom Parom is a children's marching song. 2:21-3:56

2) Hopa He is sung by the Zedikoff Children's Choir and is another marching song. 4:32-5:51

3) Shir Hanoded, The Song Of The Wanderer, is sung by an unnamed mixed choral group. 5:58-7:19

4) Lashir L’orech Haderech, Singing Along The Way, is sung by an unnamed mixed choral group. 7:46-9:40

5) Hava lanu Levenim, Give Us Bricks To Build Our Country, is sung by an unnamed mixed choral group and is an old song from the pioneers. 9:57-11:39

6) Korem Lanu La'leched, They're Calling Us To Go, is sung by an unnamed mixed choral group and is sung during the 4 day annual joyous march to Jerusalem by 20,000 hikers.
