More than twenty years after his death, Zohar Argov continues to be a legend and a legacy in Oriental and Mizrahi Music.  His contributions to Israeli, Sephardic and Jewish Music worldwide cannot be overstated here.  Argov, by himself, catapulted Mizrahi and Oriental Music, formerly enjoyed exclusively by Sephardic communities into mainstream Israeli National culture and into Ashkenazic and Jewish cultures too.

 

It can be said that Zohar Argov was also a musical genius.  He was able to perform a track for recording in one studio session and improvise a song in a moment.Moreover, he applied his religious soulful oriental style of music to western and universal themes such as love, heartache, disappointments, joy and addiction. Unfortunately, Argov's life and career war marred by his heroin and drug addictions which led to his untimely death at the early age of 32 years old.

 

Argov's debut album, Elinor (1980) features the hit songs, "The Secret of the Zodiac" and "What Do You Have Girl," a tribute to his ex-wife, Bracha, who remained the love of his life.  These and other great hits included here, "The Flower in My Garden," "There Were Times (In The Past)" and "Badad" are now Israeli and Jewish Classics while Zohar has reached International recognition for his lifetime achievements.

 

As a bonus, this 17 CD Collection includes a booklet with a biography of Zohar Argov and a special gift case.
