Yodfat: Diwan Saz Concert at Tel Yodfat, Galilee, Israel
Israel

Tel Yodfat is the site of the Ancient town of Yodfat, which used to be the main city of this region in the Galilee. From 100 BCE until 67 CE, there were thousands of people living at this site. During the "Great Revolt" of the Judeans against the Roman Empire, the people of Yodfat held off the siege of the Roman Legions of Vepasian for 47 days. At the end of the battles, the leader of the Jews, Yosef Ben Mattitiyahu surrendered and eventually became Flavius Josephus, the famous chronicler of that period.

Diwan Saz is led by master teacher Yohai Barak.Diwan Saz explores the Turkish and Kourdish musical traditions and ads some of their own sacred Hebrew text. This was an amazing concert produced by WOMINI.

Here is a shot of the area where food was being served. I had some kind of meat in a laffa (it was one of the best grilled sandwiches I ever ate!)

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
