From Here to Greece
As other countries, residing to the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, there has always been a strong connection between the Greek music and the Israeli audience. Many Greek tunes found Hebrew lyrics, many Greek singers found a home here, and the Israeli music lovers are crowding the Greek style clubs. During the days of the festival, a Greek breeze will blow in the HaDkalim Square and it shall carry with it the magical sounds of the bouzouki and tavernas down the alleys of the Old City. Avi Motro and Idan Sela, two local singers with deep affinity to the Greek music, will perform each evening the classics of Athens and the aroma of Ouzo in live shows that connect Greece with Jerusalem, and invite you to dance your troubles away.
