HaBanot Nechama is one of the best bands I've ever heard from Israel. They're music is a nice little mixture of folk and reggae, and their vocal harmonies are just spot on. Also, I don't think anyone has ever made Hebrew sound so sexy. This is one of the songs from their self-titled debut album which came out in August of 2007. Since then the girls have been working on their own solo projects. It is unfortunate that most conversations about Israel always focus on the political situation and rarely touch on cultural themes. Israel advocacy groups desperately need to add a cultural element to their efforts. Anyways, enjoy!
