Kalaniot (Anemones)

Kalaniot (Anemones)The National Library recently completed cataloging the archive of composer Moshe Wilensky. This accomplishment coincided with the annual blooming of these wild anemones, a fitting coincidence as the song "Kalaniot" was among Wilensky's most famous works. First performed at the Li-La-Lo Theater, by Shoshana Damari, this unforgettable song soon spread through the world of Hebrew song like wildflowers in the fields.
 
We bring you two different renditions of the song, one by the iconic Shoshana Damari and the other an instrumental arrangement by Albert Piamenta himself, performed by "Habarnashim shel Piamenta".
