Itzik Yona-Mountain Song

I came across this magical gem while browsing through local gig listings and I'm so happy to have discovered it. It goes perfectly with the wonderful weather we've been having lately, reminding us to fully appreciate the present moment. It's so calming and peaceful and captures the spiritual journey so many Israelis embark on in India and the far East. With so many Israelis travelling there it's a bit of a surprise that there isn't more influence in local music, but then again so many travel to clean their heads and come back ready to face the next part of their lives leaving the adopted Indian (or Eastern) influence behind. I've found that with spiritual music you have to be in the right mindset to really enjoy it but when you are it's so rewarding. Here's a beautiful clip of Yona on the sitar playing Indian music with other Israeli musicians.

Gazing around the hills
Deciding to stay a little longer
But the fire already wants to go to sleep
If we won't freeze to death we'll live and continue from there

Impressions from yesterday
Like a cloud now we're going down
And the tear is a tear of laughter
The same principle argument you were arguing

People say hello
A shining street and the traffic flows around
Everything passes by nothing stops
And Anata explains to me that the trip is over

Till then the sun will come back again
Till then the sun will come back again
Till then the sun will come back again
