It’s a sad day for the Israeli music and culture. Arik Einstein is dead. For folks who do not know that well Israel, Arik’s loss is like if Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen (may them live long and happy lives) would go. A symbol of the Israeli culture, a symbol of his generation. I know no better way to honor musicians who go than playing their music. Here is one I love, it’s called Me and You, the music belongs to Miki Gabrielov, the words are Arik’s:

Me and You,
We will change the world
Me and You,
And then all the other will join …

Este o zi trista pentru muzica si cultura israeliena. Ieri seara a murit Arik Einstein. Pentru cei care cunosc mai putin Israelul, pierdera lui Arik este similara pentru israelieni cu cea a unui Bob Dylan sau Leonard Cohen (sa fie sanatosi si sa cante pana la adanci batraneti). A fost un simbol al culturii israeliene si al generatiei sale. Nu cunosc o modalitate mai buna de a onora amintirea unui muzician care a plecat dintre noi decat a-i asculta muzica. Iata un cantec pe care il iubesc in mod special, se numeste Eu si Tu. Muzica este compusa de Miki Gabrielov, cuvintele ii apartin lui Arik:

Eu si Tu,
Vom schimba lumea
Eu si Tu,
Si atunci toti ni se vor alatura …

 

 

A few more below. There are so many. A year and two ago the Israeli Army Radio dedicated a special broadcast for his music, they played a full day of his beautiful songs, and it was not enough.

Inca cateva in continuare. Sunt atat de multe. Acum un an sau doi Galei Zahal (postul de radio al armatei) a dedicat o emisiune speciala muzicii sale, o zi intreaga de transmisie, si nu a fost destul pentru a le reda pe toate.

 

 

יהי זכרו ברוך

May his memory be blessed

Fie-i amintirea binecuvantata
