A music mix featuring Dead Sea Music Festival musicians and new Israeli hits including:

* Sinai Tor - Simcha Gedola - Off his first album, which I like best. He is rumored to be soon releasing a third.

* Knesiat HaSehel (The Mind Church) - Autobiographia - The moody '90s rock group is back with a new hit album.

* Shimon & Or Lev-Tahor - Lihiot Chofshi BMetziut HaZot - I heard this many times in jam sessions before discovering it on the Boombamela web site.

* Adi Ran - Eize Kef Lihiot Yehudi - The acoustic version. "So Fun to be Jewish." And fun to hear him sing about gefilte fish.

* Mordechai Ben-David - Maaminim - I hear this song everywhere in Jerusalem.

* Haakevot (The Footsteps) - Shema Yisrael - Two young army guys. When I interviewed them, they had to ask their commander's permission.
