about

Since the end of the official "Now" album tour in August 2003 we have solidified a beautiful and extraordinary musical collaboration and friendship with the magnificent "Solis String Quartet" from Naples. We first met them when we shared a stage during a televised concert in the famous Monasteria Santa Chiara in Napoli on Jan-5th 2002 . Since then we became intent on working with this wonderful group of musicians . We started preparing string arrangements for our songs, some written by Gil, others by Solis and some adapted by Solis from Ilan Mochiach, our symphonic arranger. We covered a wide range of songs from all our albums and were delighted with the outcome. We feel that this new setting: guitar, percussion by the amazing Zohar Fresco and Strings, brings out both the "classical", harmonic and melodic nature of our music and its rhythmic feel in full color. We enjoyed touring with Solis immensely and hope to do much more of it in the future!.

Track Name: For Father (Yalda Im Tzamot)
מילים ולחן : גרשון פרנסקי (מקור)
אחינועם ניני וגיל דור

אני זוכרת לפני שנים
ילדה קטנה וצוחקת
מעל כתפיך סיפור ושיר
היית שר לי בשקט

היה היתה לי ילדה קטנטונת
ולה צמות מושלכות על גב
ועת התירה עבות צמותיה
ניתר ליבי מחישוריו

ובחורשה צמותיה פרמתי
חייך ירח זקן חביב
אך עם שלכת
השירה עליה
גם בליבנו גווע אביב
לה לה ...

היה היתה לי ילדה קטנטונת
ולה צמות מושלכות על גב
הלוך הלכה לה ילדה,
קטנטונת
חלף אביב, הגיע סתיו
עכשיו עומדת אותה ילדה
שיער גולש על כתפיה
במה מוארת, אני נזכרת ...
ושיר שולחת אליך ...

היה היתה לך ילדה קטנטונת
ולה צמות מושלכות על גב

אך לא שלכת
היא מחייכת
חלף הלך לו
נגמר הסתיו
הנה אביב
מתחיל
עכשיו

Lyrics & Music: G. Prinsky
Translation by Noa:

i remember years ago
a little girl with her laughter
from high up on on your shoulders you would tell
me stories,
and sing to me softly

once i had a little girl
with two braids swinging on her back
when she undid her thick black braids
my heart would also come undone

in the meadow, i unraveled them
friendly old moon smiled down on us
but in the fall, shed shed them all
to the autumn of our souls

in the meadow, i unraveled them
friendly old moon smiled down on us

once i had a little girl
with two braids swinging on her back
she has gone, this little girl
and taken spring away with her

now that same girl stands before you
long black hair caped over her shoulders
stage lights shine
and in my mind
i send a song out to you

once i had a little girl
with two braids swinging on her back
but autumns past
and she will laugh
fall is all but gone away
a lovely spring
begins
today
Track Name: Mishaela
מילים : גיל דור
לחן : אחינועם ניני

בעיניה
מי יודע
עננים אפורים מתפזרים לארבע רוחות
נחל אכזב מתמלא, דשא ירוק מכסה
והמרחב נפתח

לשמים
זוג עיניים
מביטות, מחפשות, צוללות בכחול הקר
מרחפות באוויר אל הזהב המאיר
את שערה הרך .

מישאלה, מה את רואה ?
מה בליבך הצוחק אל אותה הדממה ?
אז את עיני לי תפקח, קשת אחת במזרח
והלא די בכך

(והלא די לי, די לי בכך ? והלא די בכך...)

Translation by Noa:

who knows what is in her eyes?
grey clouds disperse in the four winds
a dry riverbed overflows
and the horizon opens wide

up to the heaven she turns her eyes
searching, diving in to the chilly blue
floating in the air
touching the pure golden light
that glimmers in her hair

mishaela, what do you see?
what is it in your heart
that greets the desolate silence with such
laughter?

it is one rainbow in the east, she says
it is all i need

what more could i want?
it is all that i need
Track Name: Wildflower
in a tenement near the henry hudson river
from my favorite spot on a rusting fire escape
i would look below.
and see mario
braving the ferocious dandelions

mario, our fearless superintendent
kept the garden green, despite the parkway smog
but the flowering weeds
their fates decreed
pulled, to keep his rosebush from dying

then i would creep inside, curl up in my bed
something strong was pulling at my head
pulling at my heart

wild flower, growing in all the wrong places
wild flower, so lonely 'neath that lovely rose bush
proper garden's nightmare, queen of opened fields
tell me, who will love this wildflower
for exactly what she is?

years passed by, we left that red brick building
left mario behind
for a brand new house
but my dark brown skin
on the white washed walls within
stood out, so it'd get me up and cryin?

my growing pains had many rooms to fill, then
mother never know
..had a garden to keep clean
while there was ny grease
on her young flower from the middle east
she was busy pulling dandelions

then i would creep inside, curl up in my bed
something strong was pulling at my head
pulling at my heart


wild flower, growing in all the wrong places
wild flower, so lowly 'neath that lovely rosebush
proper garden's nightmare, queen of opened fields
tell me, who will love this wildflower
for exactly what she is?
Track Name: I Don't Know
flower, colored bright
i am strong i can fight
but i don't know.

tower, brick and stone
make my way on my own
but i don't know

i don't know why, i don't know how
if i can fly, can i fly now?
are my wings strong enough to bear
the winds out there?
hey, i don't know.

tell me it'll never fade
and i'll go forth unafraid
because i don't know.

show me rain and flood
to cool the fire in my blood
because i don't know.

i don't know why, i don't know how
if i can fly, can i fly now?
are my wings strong enough to bear
the winds out there?
hey, i don't know.

darkness, edge of night
you are here, i'm in flight
now i know, now i know
now i know
Track Name: He (Boi Kala)
מילים: לאה גולדברג
לחן: אחינועם ניני וגיל דור

קרבתך וקרבת הים
גזלו את שנתי.
נשמת אפך נשבה מן הים
ותחדור, מלוחה, אל ביתי.

וגלים בדכים
עולים בבכים
למרומי אהבתי.
בואי כלה.

בירח אדום מול הים
מפכה דמך.
בירח אדום מול הים
דמי ודמך.
וגלים בדכים
זועקים בבכים
את שמך, את שמך, את שמך,
בואי כלה.

איך אסגור את חלוני
וקרובה הסופה?
איך אסגור את חלוני
ואת יחפה?
איך אסגור את חלוני
והים קרא?
איך אסגור את חלוני
ואת ערה?
והאוח מלב הליל
את שנתי קרע?
בואי כלה.

Translation by Noa:

the nearness of the sea and you
obliterates all hopes of rest
your salty breath has blown over the sea
to penetrate my breast

the rising of my love
is like the waves at tide...
come, my bride

in a red moon over sea
your blood is burning
in a red moon i can see
our blood is turning
the rising tide
will call and cry
your name, your name in yearning
come, my bride

come my bride...
how can i close the window
when the storm is near?
how can i close my window
when your feet are bare?
how can i close my window
when the ocean weeps
how can i, knowing youre
awake somewhere...

the owl shattered my sleep
when in the night he cried,
come, my bride
Track Name: She
מילים: לאה גולדברג
לחן: גיל דור

שלחת אלי את האוח
להעירני משינה.
לימדת אותו לצווח
מילות אהבה ותחינה
אבל אני לא אבוא,
לא אבוא, לא אבוא!

שילחת בי את ריח
האצות ואת הלבנה,
ציוית על הים להאנח
בקול אהבה ותחינה
אבל אני לא אבוא,
לא אבוא, לא אבוא!

נשקו הגלים את רגלי,
את שולי שמלתי הלבנה.
בקולך אמרו לי "בואי אלי"
בקול אהבה ותחינה.
ואני חזרתי אל ביתי,
סגרתי את דלתי,
חלוני מוגף
ליבי ישן ואני ישנה.

Translation by Noa:

you sent the owl to me
to shatter my repose
you taught him well to
cry out words of love in pleading prose
but i will not come
i will not,
i will not
you've plagued me with the bitter scent of
seaweed and the moon
you've made the ocean heave and sigh
in a lovers swoon
but i will not come
i will not,
i will not

the waves have kissed my feet
the hem of my snowy-white dress
in your voice they said to me
come with a lover's caress

but i returned unto my rooms
closed the door
shut the window tight
my heart is asleep
i am asleep
Track Name: Now Forget
give me your pain
give me your sorrow
give me your loneliness
and broken dreams
your bad times
and your worry
now forget
now forget

give me your past
give me your family
give me the walls you build
and the ones you break
your shadows
and your longing
now forget.
now forget.

all that will be
but isnt yet
now forget,
now forget.

ill put it all
in a small wooden box
with the rusty old lock
and the sparrows in flight
ill guard it with my life
through the long long night

you are my eyes
you are my passion
you are my journey to where ive been
you are my reason
for living
now forget
now forget.

ill put it all
in a small wooden box
with the rusty old lock
and the sparrows in flight
ill guard it with my life
through the long long night

give me your truth
give me your questions
give me your longing for what will be
give me your daydreams
and your demons
now forget
now forget.

all that will be
but isnt yet
now forget
now forget

now forget
now forget
Track Name: Eye in the Sky
don't think sorry's easily said

don't try turning tables instead
you've taken lots of chances before
but i'm not gonna give anymore
don't ask me
that's how it goes
cause part of me knows what you're thinkin'


don't say words you're gonna regret
don't let the fire rush to your head
i've heard the accusation before
and i ain't gonna take any more
believe me
the sun in your eyes
made some of the lies worth believing


i am the eye in the sky
looking at you
i can read your mind
i am the maker of rules
dealing with fools
i can cheat you blind
and i don't need to see any more
to know that
i can read your mind, i can read your mind

don't leave false illusions behind
don't cry cause i ain't changing my mind
so find another fool like before
cause i ain't gonna live anymore believing
some of the lies while all of the signs are deceiving

i am the eye in the sky
looking at you
i can read your mind
i am the maker of rules
dealing with fools
i can cheat you blind
and i don't need to see any more
to know that
i can read your mind, i can read your mind
Track Name: Motor Lullabies
restlessly turning, imprisoned and freed
still is the night but that?s not what i need
gimme repetitive motion,
a circle, a notion
a steam engine dream..

motor lullabies
of turning wheels and bolts
motor lullabies
rocking me to sleep
motor lullabies
on long and winding roads
motor lullabies
transporting
motor lullabies
transporting me

restlessly turning, imprisoned and freed
still is the night but that?s not what i need
tenderness found as the rhythmn goes round
i?m caressed by the sound of my motor lullabies
of turning wheels and bolts
motor lullabies
rocking me to sleep
motor lullabies
on long and winding roads
motor lullabies
transporting
motor lullabies
transporting me

motor, motor sing your song
theirs or mine or his
motor, motor will i wake
close to where my true life is..

motor lullabies
of turning wheels and bolts
motor lullabies
rocking me to sleep
motor lullabies
on long and winding roads
motor lullabies
transporting
motor lullabies
transporting me..
transporting
transporting me..
Track Name: Wandering (Mabat Einicha)
מילים:לאה גולדברג
לחן:אחינעם ניני וגיל דור
את ריח מטר האביב שעלה מאבני המרצפת
את מנגינת אורות הפנסים, את אגדת הכנור
את כוכבי המרום, שטעו בכוסי המברקת
את הכל את הכל אזכור

רק איני יודעת אם היה זה מבט עיניך
שהצית בי ברקים לרבבה
לא אדע אם הלכתי איתך ואליך
ברחובות הלומי אהבה

היה אביב והצחוק נסתר בכל ניצן פוקע
וברית דם ויין כרותה
ולכל אחד שהעיף בי מבט משתוקק וכמה
האמנתי שהוא - אתה

translation by noa:


the fresh smell of spring rain that
rose from the sidewalk,
street lamps and violins, tales that they tell,
the stars that plunged into my sparkling glass,
i remember these things,
i remember them well

but i cannot recall- was it really your eyes
that sparked off this thunder from heavens
above?
i know not if it was with you, and to you
that i walked in these streets that howl of love

spring it was
flowering buds impregnated with laughter
an oath of blood and a wine is taken
sworn to be true
and every stranger's glance i got
of longing and of passion,
i believe with all my heart
that it was you
Track Name: Barren (Uri-Akara)
לחן: אחינועם ניני
מילים: רחל

בן לו היה לי
ילד קטן
שחור תלתלים ונבון
לאחוז בידו ולפסוע לאט
בשבילי הגן
ילד קטן

אורי אקרא לו
אורי שלי
רך וצלול הוא השם הקצר
רסיס נהרה
לילדי השחרחר
אורי אקרא לו
אורי אקרא

עוד אתמרמר כרחל (האם)
עוד אתפלל כחנה בשילה
(עוד) אחכה
לו

Translation by Noa:

i wish i had a son
a little boy
bright, with black curly hair
i would take his hand in mine
and stroll slowly, slowly
through the garden
little boy

uri, i'd call him
my uri!
how gentle and clear this tiny name
a glimmer of joy
for my little boy,
uri, i'd call him
uri, i'd call

but i still bitter as rachel
i am still praying as hannah in shiloh,
i am still waiting for him.
i will
wait
Track Name: Yuma
translation by noa:

oh father, mother
don't make me marry him for money
i love another
whose eyes are kind and lips are honey

the cattle grazing fields are free
so why enbondage me
your cows and oxen can be sold
do not enslave my soul

oh father, mother
your nights are stormed
with rain and thunder
oh father, mother
your nights are stormed
with rain and thunder

the water gushing from the sky
is teardrops from my eyes
the thunder tearing skies apart
the beating of my heart
Track Name: Eye Opener (Pokeach)
מילים : דן מינסטר
לחן : אחינועם ניני

וכאשר אתה פוקח את עיניך,
הבוקר הופך לאחר הצהריים מאוחרים
והנה כבר יורד הערב
(ערב נופל, לילה עוטף את השמיים)

Translation by Noa:

and when you open your eyes
morning turns to late afternoon
and then evening falls

(night embraces the sky)
Track Name: Child of Man
if i were a desert flower
all winter long i'd pain and cower
spring would make me sing
my voice would ring
as tiny buds begin to bloom
in spring i'd blossom and forget
the winters gloom.

if i were a brook of water
kissed by the frost along my borders
spring would make me sing my voice would ring
as i'd release my ice chains
in spring i'd bubble and forget the winter's rains.

but i am only a child of man
i am only a child of man
just an innocent child of man

don't look so surprised as my eyes shine and glow
it's the sunlight in the skies that is making me so.

if i were a joyful songbird
all winter long so cold and somber
spring would make me sing
my voice would ring like tiny bells on scarves of silk
a song as beautiful and pure as mothers milk.

but i am only a child of man
i am only a child of man
just an innocent child of man

don't look so surprised as my eyes
shine and glow
it's the sunlight in the skies
that is making me so.

don't be surprised
by this look in my eyes
like a flower or tree
i will bloom in the spring
i will shed all my woes
as the green grass grows
like a flower or tree
i will throw my head back and sing

if i were a desert flower, desert flower..
Track Name: Ray of Light (Keren Or)
מילים : לאה גולדברג
לחן : אחינועם ניני / גיל דור

את כל הכוכבים טמן,
את הסהר עטף בשחור
מצפון ועד תימן
אין קרן אור.

אין אור, אין קרן אור
אין אור, אין קרן אור
אין אור, אין אור,
אין קרן אור.
אין אור, אין אור,
אין קרן אור.
אין קרן אור.

והבוקר אלמן נאמן
שק אפור על מותניו יחגור
מצפון ועד תימן
אין קרן אור.

אין אור, אין קרן אור...

הדליקו נא נר לבן
באוהל ליבי השחור
מצפון ועד תימן
יזרח האור .

האור, יזרח האור
האור, יזרח האור
האור, האור, יזרח האור
יזרח האור .


translation:
all the stars hidden away
and the moon in a pitch black night
from the north
and south to yemen
not a ray of light

morning, loyal widower
clutch your grey sack tight
from the north
and south to yemen
not a ray of light


no light, not a ray of light

light a small white candle
in this darkened tent,
this heart of mine
from the north
and south to yemen
then a brilliant light will shine!

the light, the light will shine

Track Name: Uno Queriendo Ser Dos
uno en la noche
uno al despertar
uno soañdo
una mitad
uno asustado
uno y su dolor
uno queriendo ser dos.
uno desierto
uno mar azul
uno en el filo
uno inquietud
uno buscando
uno desamor
uno queriendo ser dos.

donde estaré mañana?
donde estarås mi amor?
bajo el sol
abrazamé
fundidos los dos
en un corazón
uno dudando
si hay o no verdad
uno mil veces soledad
uno escuchando
a su corazón
uno queriendo ser dos.
donde estaré mañana?
donde estarås mi amor?
bajo el sol
abrazamé
que sé que tu y yo
podemos ser dos.

uno mentira
uno realidad
uno la herida y la sal
uno pregunta
sin contestación
uno queriendo ser dos.
Track Name: Santa Lucia Luntana
partono é bastimente
pe terra assaje luntane
cantano a buordo e sò napulitane
cantano pe tremente
ó golfo già scumpare
é a luna, in miezz'o mare
´nu poco é Napule le fà vedè
Santa lucia luntano á te
quanta malincunia!
se gira ò munno sanno
se và a cercà fortuna
ma quanno spuntá luna
luntano é napule nun se può stà!
Santa Lucia tu tiene
solo ´nu poco é mare
Ma cchiú luntano staje
cchiù bella pare!
ó canto ´d é Ssirene
ca tesse ancora é rezze.
core, nun vó murì!
Santa Lucia luntano à te
quanta malincunia!
Track Name: Torna E Surriento
vide ó mare quant'è bello!
spira tantu sentimento.
comme tu a chi tiene mente
ca scetato ó faje sunná.
guarda, guá chistu ciardino;
siente, siè sti sciure arance.
nu prufumo accuss fino
dinto ó core se ne va...
e tu dice "I'parto, addio!"
tálluntane da stu core...
da la terra da lámmore...
tiene ó core 'e nun turn
ma nun me lassá
nun darme stu turmiento!
torna a Surriento,
famme campá!
vide ó mare de Surriento,
che tesoro tene ´nfunno:
chi ha girato tutto ó munno
nun l'ha visto commá ccá.
guarda attuorno sti sserene,
ca te guardano ´ncantate
e te vonno tantu bene...
te vulessero vasá.
e tu dice "I'parto, addio!"

Track Name: Beautiful That Way
smile, without a reason why
love, as if you were a child
smile, no matter what they tell you
don't listen to a word they say
'cause life is beautiful that way

tears, a tidal-wave of tears
light that slowly disappears
wait, before you close the curtain
there's still another game to play
and life is beautiful that way

here, in his eyes forever more
i will always be as close as you remember from before.

now, that you're out there on your own
remember, what is real and what we dream is love alone.

keep the laughter in your eyes
soon, your long awaited prize
well forget about our sorrow
and think about a brighter day
'cause life is beautiful that way
Track Name: Shalom Shalom
here my friends i stand before you,
naked, stripped of all pretense
i'm here to say a word or two
in the name of love and innocence
it's been a long time they've been out of style,
but i won't live in illusion,
there's not much chance that things will change on lonely planet earth.

all that is natural, all that is free
like me loving you, and you loving me,
like the sweet fruit growing on a tree,
like the blood-red choral in the sea,
like shaking hands and sharing food,
and a real creative attitude
and a big strong hug,yes, that feels good,
and the miracle of birth

shalom shalom,
shalom shalom shalom,
shalom shalom,
shalom shalom shalom

you really don't need a diploma
from any university
to understand and to enjoy
this plentiful diversity
you only need to clean your mind of all those preconceptions
and use your mouth for laughing and for asking and to kiss?
communicate, communicate,
don't think: "oh lord, i've come too late!" you're always welcome at love's gate
to wash your feet of fear and hate
so when you come and when you go,
the words are peace, goodbye, hello,
in a language that I know it goes like this:

shalom shalom,shalom
shalom shalom,
shalom shalom,shalom
shalom shalom?

so if our strategy is love
(don't bite my head off, i said love)
and you say: "duuuh,
so simple!"
yeah, but easy to miss?.

so when you come and when you go,
so when you come and when you go,
the words are peace, goodbye, hello,
in a language that I know it goes like this:

shalom shalom,shalom
shalom shalom,
shalom shalom,shalom
shalom shalom?
Track Name: Ave Maria
ave maria
where have you been hiding?
don?t you know we need you!
things are looking pretty bad down here.
i know that there is beauty
gentleness, and laughter
these are things you always stood for
help us find them too.

hey, there, maria!
santa maria...maria.
may i take a liberty
and say that it?s a shame to me
not to live in harmony
were all just hoping
someone will step forward singing...
amen, amen

ave maria
where have you been hiding?
don?t you know we need you!
things are looking pretty bad down here.

on our quest for peace and freedom
help us see this through

hey, there, maria!
santa maria...maria.
may i take a liberty
and say that it?s a shame to me
not to live in harmony
we're all just hoping
someone will step forward singing...
