This selection of pieces for mandolin and guitar represents the rich variety of music from Israel. Styles range from the diaspora of Babylonian Jewry through European klezmer traditions, and Balkan Ladino songs, to contemporary influences from America. Paul Ben-Haim and Marc Lavry pioneered the use of music originating in the Jewish East, and Jan Freidlin continues the tradition, employing Oriental dance figures in his music. Oren Lokís Ahava is an homage to love, while Ittai Rosenbaumís Duet offers a vibrant and jazzy conclusion to this wideranging conspectus.

Duo Mantar:
- Jacob Reuven (mandolin)
- Adam Levin (guitar)
