This week’s ‘Sounds Israeli’ features Rita (Rita Yahan-Farouz), the wildly popular Iranian-born Israeli musician and actress.
The most recent album by the 50-year-old singer, ‘My Joy’ (released in 2011), consisted of traditional Persian songs, and, besides turning gold in Israel, reportedly became an underground hit on underground radio stations in some Muslim countries, including Iran.
Here’s Rita singing a song from ‘My Joy’, titled ‘Shane’.
