SHTETL ON THE SHORTWAVE

Zvuloon

When Zion Calls

Fellow audio travelers, scroll down and click on the play button to hear the 1st episode of Shtetl from the Middle East.

Whether it’s a state of mind, or Ethiopian Jews coming en masse to Jerusalem, or Netanyahu inviting all the Jews of France to come live in Israel, Jamaicans searching for Jah or hippies looking for redemption….Zion is calling!

Find out about the Ethiopian Jewish experience in Israel with musicians from the amazing Ethiopian/reggae band Zvuloon Dub System (check them out in Montreal Jan 31 at the Rialto), and, hear what a sampling of people on the street in Tel Aviv had to say about Netanyahu’s visit to Paris.

Thanks for tuning in to Shtetl’s very first episode from the Middle East. We’re just getting started! To find out more, follow our Tumblr blog and like us on FB, Instagram ‘n Twitter.

Bringing you lots of sounds, great music, images and unexpected moments from this fascinating little country by the sea.

Peace&Love,
Tamara
Your humble Shtetl host.
