Notes & Reviews:

The music on this CD is a joyous celebration of Zionist dreams and hopes, as well as of daily life in Israel. From the mystical nostalgia of 'Old Jerusalem' to the rambunctious energy of 'Yom b'kibbutz' (A Day on a Kibbutz), this delightful program takes listeners on an unforgettable musical voyage to the land of Israel.
