Acclaimed Israeli performer Mika Karni presents "Kol Dodi," a special musical version of one of the world’s most beautiful love songs of all time: “Shir Ha’Shirim - The Song of Songs." The performance brings together a unique ensemble of Israeli Moroccan, Yemenite and Ethiopian musicians and singers. The ensemble's special sound combines traditional Jewish melodies with African – Ethnic rhythms and a taste of folk/singer-songwriter qualities, creating a musical landscape of modern Israel. Mika composed and re-arranged the original biblical lyrics to convey the original story in a modern, intimate and personal way, taking the listener to a deep and emotional experience.
