Shalom, gentle readers. Went away for the weekend to Rehovot (close to Tel Aviv) in order to see the incomprable David Broza in concert. For those of you who don't know who he is--go out now and buy one of his albums. You can probably get them in the World Music section of any Tower Records and definately in any Jewish or Israeli book store. (For those of you in Boston, that means go to Brookline and ask). He's a combo of Spanish flamenco and Israeli folk-rock, I was absolutely blown away. He ended with Yihiyeh Tov (It Will Be Good), which is a legendary song in Israel from the '70s, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. Its kind of like seeing Bob Dylan sing Blowing in the Wind on an acoustic guitar. We were in the third row, by the way, 'nuff said. I recommend Live at Masada, probably his best album. Go. Buy it. Now.
