Yerushalayim


Yerushalayim Shel Zahav - Ofra Haza

Beautiful song, passionate performance, graceful presence and power, commanding a crowd of people (choreographed) to move in the way that they do in this video. Keep watching to see when it happens ...

Note:
I'm enjoying the (re)discovery of the inspiring Ofra Haza and finding so many great links to her music and some videos. Let's just call this Ofra Week.

Yes, Lynn, I remember you saying that you spent time there/lived there. I love this song, perhaps best of all I've heard so far - haunting, beautiful and powerful - so I looked up the translated lyrics. "Ofra week" seems to have a life of its own ... (will explain next week).
