Israeli Music Artists - 2009



Naomi Shemer (1930-2004)is the most readily identified artist in the world of Israeli music following the establishment of the State. She wrote and composed hundreds of the songs that became Israeli classics, especially thanks to her wonderful integration of words and melodies, foremost among which are Jerusalem of Gold, May It Be, The Eucalyptus Grove and many others that determined her place as Israel`s national songwriter.
Shoshana Damari (1923-2006). Her powerful voice, theatrical personality and the songs she performed made her the queen of Israeli music, gaining recognition before the establishment of the State thanks to her song Anemones. The combination of her singing style with the words and melodies she sang made her songs a symbol of Israel`s developing culture, of Israel`s melting pot, of the integration of East and West.
Ofra Haza (1957-2000) began her musical career in the Hatikva neighborhood theater workshop and in the Middle-Eastern-style song festival, but gained national attention in the late 1970`s as she appeared in the film Shlager (A Hit) with her hit song The Song of the Bimbo. She quickly achieved a place of honor in popular Israeli music and launched a successful international career thanks to her musical talent, her unique voice and the warmth and ethnic quality of her songs.

I just have to say, though a little late I suppose, re. the Kathe Kollwitz stamps posted last month, she is one of my FAVOURITE artists of all time. Her engravings and lithographs are stunning in their simplicity and power. I tried acquiring one many years ago at an art auction, but was quickly out bid! Someday.....

Nice! This is one of my faves. 'Woman in a blue Shawl' a rare multicoloured lithograph.
Her portraits of mothers with their small children were absolutely beautiful. So touching.

Betsy Ross (1752-1836)



Betsy Ross is widely credited with making the first American flag and changing the stars on the flag from six-pointed to easier-to-produce five-pointed stars. But, there is no archival evidence that this story is true.

Indian queens warriors - I.



Rani Laxmibat of Jhansi (1834-1858)
Rani Laxmibai's courage, deeds of valour and heroic battle against the British have become the theme of many a folklore and ballad in the country. She is the immortal warrior the country has ever seen. Even as a child Laxmibai learnt horse riding and sward fighting. When both her husband Raja Gangadhar Rao of Jhansi and her only son died in 1853 she adopted a son and made him the heir to the throne. The British Governor General Dalhousie refused to recognize her adopted son as heir to the throne and ordered annexation of Jhansi into British Raj. Rani Laxmibai refused to part with Jhansi. A fierce fight ensued. The Rani fought the British undauntedly leading her forces from the front and showed great courage and skill. She was fatally wounded in the battle and she breathed her last on 18.06.1858.
Kittur Rani Chennamma (1778-1829)
Chennamma received training in horse riding, sword fighting and archery in her young age. She was married to Raja Mullasarja of Kittur, a princely state of Belgaum in Karnataka. Her husband died in 1816. Her only son died in 1824. Chennamma adopted Shivalingappa as her son and made him heir to the throne. The British did not accept this and ordered the expulsion of Shivalingappa. The Rani defied the order. A great battle ensued. The Rani fought the British with great courage and skill. She could not, however, hold out for long. She was taken captive and lodged in Bailhongal Fort where she died on 21.02.1829.
