Ofra Haza - My Soul (Kol Haneshama)

Topics: Entertainment

Time for a late evening break from the harsh realities of life today in a world steeped in violence from radical Islam and the insane infighting in Washington.

Here is my favorite way to take a step back and relax: Listening to the great Israeli singer Ofra Haza, this time she's singing Kol Haneshama (The Whole Soul):

Here she sings, "Im Nin'Alu" [1978]:

Here she sings "Le'orech Hayam" (Along The Sea), performed on the assembly in memorial to deceased Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, a week after he was assassinated. Radio stations around the country started playing it and people took notice. Its lyrics became even more symbolic following Haza's own death in 2000.

Our previous Ofra Haza post here tells about her, and has more of her music.

For a change of pace there's always Alanis, Janis, and Yma Sumac.

But if you're really into something very different and a lot lighter, check out our previous post on belly dancing.
