Simona from Dimona

Simona from Dimona

​​"Simona miDimona" 
Music by Shlomo Weisfisch, lyrics by Haim Shalmoni
Performed by Rika Zerai and the Eilon band


Shalmoni wrote this song for Yisrael Yitzhaki who had told him a story about being hosted after a performance by Simona and her husband, a couple from Dimona. Of course, Shalmoni never met Simona from Dimona, and the with the exception of the name, the song is entirely a work of imagination. This information comes from the Mima website.
