Zohar Argov: Quiet Songs, Oriental/Mizrahi Israel Music 2 CD Set 2008
Still the leader of Oriental and Mizrahi music, Quiet Songs, Volume 1 and Volume 2 are collections of songs by Zohar Argov. He is the most well-known singer of Oriental and Mizrahi music in Israel today.
Over twenty years have passed since the death of Zohar Argov and yet he is still the most famous vocalist or singer of Oriental and Mizrahi music.Born and raised in a Yemenite community of Rishon LeZion, Israel, Zohar Argov sang and chanted religious traditional Sephardic songs in his hometown and later, sang professionally Oriental and Mizrahi styles of music. He sang all of his life. Perhaps this background gave Zohar his musical talent, perhaps his short turbulent life and struggle with drug addictions contributed to his early death at the age of 32 years old but Zohar Argov packed so much creativity and artistic wealth into these brief seven professional years that he produced more in his short life span than other artists produce in their entire lives.
Collections of Zohar Argov continue to be recorded and produced as the third decade has begun after his death. The success of his commercial film already released more than a decade ago still sells soundtracks of the film.Quiet Songs by Zohar Argov was released in 2008 and again the hits are as fresh and as new as and as wonderful as years ago. The combinations of songs and material on collection after collection shuffle the music over and over again as if on a CD player.
Though some songs are repeated, other songs are added to give an extra spice to the theme of the album.In this case, many quiet songs are collected from the repertoire of Zohar Argov. The albums, as soulful and as meaningful as only Zohar Argov can sing, are very mellow and gives the listener a sense of solitude and quiet enjoyment.Listen at a quiet moment and for a separate peace of time.+
