Geula Gill Accompanied By Dov Seltzer Group – Yemenite And Other Israel Folk Songs (1958)

The modern State of Israel has absorbed immigrants from many parts of the world, including the Middle East, and the folk music of Israel reflects the varied backgrounds of its people, both in terms of style and repertoire. Many of the tunes on this recording originated in Yemen, Bukhara (in Uzbekistan), and Iran. The Druze people, located in Israel, Syria, and elsewhere in the Middle East, are also represented.

Singer Geula Gill, a native Israeli, is accompanied by guitar, chalil (recorder), and drums. Her singing may also be heard on two other recordings: "Holiday Songs of Israel" and "Israel Dances", both available on Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. Dov Seltzer, a prominent Israeli composer, conductor, and leader of the Tsabar Group, provides the arrangements.

Oh Please, Palestine is the Fake State. Say no to the Arab Colonists.

I deleted the antisemitic comments. Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel is antisemitism.
