No matter where you are from and what is your musical taste, when oriental music plays in an event- you will dance. There’s simply nothing like it for a boost of happiness.
There are many talented (and less talented) oriental and Middle Eastern singers in Israel, and it would be unfair to include them all in one post. So for this weekend, here is Moshe Perez.
