The exquisite Ofra Haza 30 years ago when she was 21. This song Im Nin'Alu, was updated in the late 80s and has been sampled in pop and hiphop tracks by other artists. Ofra's voice had a jewel-like quality and was an instrument of rare purity. She died in 2000.

Stunning artist.

You are the only person I've ever "met" that knows Ofra Haza.

Yes, a real shame she didn't seek treatment for her AIDS sooner. Just because of the stigma!
