Ofra Haza - Fifty Gates Of Wisdom (Yemenite Songs) album FLAC
Fifty Gates of Wisdom" is Yemenite-Israeli Ofra Haza's masterpiece from 1987, melding ancient songs and rabbinical poetry with a dance beat hammered onto Yemenite drums that sound like pots and pans. It is an incomparable production that influenced the development of world-beat music and will stand proudly forever. I saw Ofra perform most of these songs live in 1990, and she exuded such joy, performing Yemenite dances around the stage as she sang. And she sang with such power, she could send a tremor down the back of the entire audience with the slightest trill

Redirected from Fifty Gates of Wisdom). Yemenite Songs (Hebrew: שירי תימן) is a 1984 album by Ofra Haza, in which the Israeli pop star returned to her roots interpreting traditional Yemeni Jewish songs with lyrics coming from the poetry of 16th century Rabbi Shalom Shabazi.
Ofra Haza's death on February 23, 2000, at the age of 41 deprived the world of a lovely woman, a great vocalist, and a fearless cultural advocate. Fifty Gates of Wisdom, her 1985 album of boldly reimagined traditional Yemenite songs, brought her international fame, and decades later, it retains its ability to delight and inspire. The set list consists of secular tunes plus examples of a festive devotional style called diwan, which is common to all Oriental Jewish communities and can be sung in Hebrew, Aramaic, or Arabic.
