Hava Nagilah

Bienvenue à tous sur le site officiel de Chanteur Marocain Hamid Bouchnak

Never abandon a soldier friend is a recent Israeli song about Ron Arad, a pilot who was taken captive in 1986, when his F-4 Phantom warplane went down over Lebanon. He was held by a Lebanese Shi’ite militia group, and later was sold to Iran. He is probably still alive today somewhere. Other songs & poems for Israelis MIA’s

The song was written by the prolific songwriter Ehud Manor. Here are many audio & video clips of Israeli dances, choreographed for songs with Ehud Manor lyrics

Not Middle Eastern! Solla Solla Enna Perumai, a dance routine from a 1981 Bollywood movie "Ellam Inba Mayam". (From Presurfer)

In Arabic music a maqaam is "a technique of improvisation" that defines the pitches, patterns, and development of a piece of music and which is "unique to Arabian art music." There are over seventy heptatonic tone rows or scales of maqaamat. These are constructed from major, neutral, and minor seconds


Hava Nagilah (= "come let us rejoice") for the holidays, from my cyber-friend, cartoonist Revilo
