Eitan Katz Feat. Benny Friedman - B'fi Yeshorim: Jewish Music video

It is always great to see excellent collaborations in the Jewish Music world.
Eitan Katz composed this gem and it also features the vocals by Benny Friedman.
This composition will take you back to the classics.
This is not what you would call contemporary! As stylistically it is a throw back to the way Jewish music sounded back in the 70's (maybe some 80's) and the arrangement is simply beautiful with piano by the great "Rambam". It is truly a treat!
