Israel's Edit Piaf is Gone

Shoshana Damari's funeral was held today in Tel Aviv.
Her CD's are remarkably expensive at Amazon, but you can hear a clip from her most famous song, Kalaniyot (Anemones), on Track 21 for free. HaKrav haAharon (The Last Battle) (Track 5) is so rousing you'll want to jump up and enlist immediately in the nearest army. Or start your own.

Oh - thank goodness for your blog. I had not heard about Shoshana Damari. Am grateful to know this sad news. I will light a candle today. The end of an era. Yes indeed.

I am so happy to be your source of Israeli news. This was really sad, but lovely too, with the radio stations all playing her songs over and over and over...I love hearing them.
