A translation from one of the youtube comments:

My Love Is Coming
My love is coming perfectly with the melody
But the sweet words are not for me
Take me with your dance, pull me beyond the doors
To the mountain of gold and sadness in the Dead Sea
For you to be center of my world.

jat mahibathi had'a tamam maya'a alr'ala, r'ala
wa alkalam halhalya mash li
ad'kamini fi alratasah salini hareg al bab, al bab
jabal al d'aheb fi thalam min bahre almela'
la mantikuni fi al thanet al a'alam

جاءت محبتي هذا تمام مع الغنى
والكلام هالحليا مش لي
اذ قيميني في الرقصة شليني خارج الباب
جبال الذهب في ظلام من بحر الملح
لا منطقوني في ظنات العالم .

Great jam! Also, that is the ultimate man-bun.

Frickin awesome. This reminds me of one of my favorite Canadian Bands, The Tea Party, who were clearly influenced by middle eastern music.

Tel Aviv’s municipality has to have had some of the most innovative strategies to promote its city of any city in the world. The latest ‘campaign’ is called Tel Aviv Indie City, a series of videos of leading Israeli singers performing in beautiful places across the city. The videos not only showcase Israeli music talent, but also include stunning shots of parts of the city which would otherwise be harder to promote

The album is available on Amazon here.
