A Song of the Sabbath


​​In honor of "Shabbat Hazon"- the Sabbath before the 9th of Av-we present the song "A song of the Sabbath"- words and tune by Shayke Paykov- in  a cappella (a vocal performance without instrumental accompaniment), for those who don't listen to instrumental music during the days before the 9th of Av. The song is performed by The Israeli Vocal Octet, an a cappella group inspired by the famous Swingle Singers. In this song, the Israeli Vocal Octet demonstrates their ability to create an instrumental effect using only their voices.
