Daliah Lavi: Erev Shel Shoshanim (1974)

Israeli Poetry/Music

Daliah Lavi [1942–2017] דליה לביא: Erev Shel Shoshanim ערב של שושנים (“Evening of Roses”), a poetic love song often sung or played at weddings. The music is by Yosef Hadar [1926–2006], the lyrics are by Moshe Dor [1932–2016], one of the founding fathers of Israeli poetry. The song was first recorded by Yafa Yarkoni [1925–2012 ] in 1957. Truly, there is a lot of history packed into one song.
