Jerusalem Festival: ‘Sounds of the Old City’

Thousands of people flocked to Jerusalem for the fifth annual Sounds of the Old City music festival

By Israel Today Staff |

The spring crowds were a welcome sight after months of Palestinian terror that left Jerusalem’s streets virtually deserted during the winter chill.

The Armenian and Muslim Quarters featured traditional sounds, the Christian Quarter was the scene of a spellbinding encounter with liturgical works, and the Jewish Quarter offered Hebrew and klezmer music.

Bands and ensembles performed in the squares and alleyways against the surreal backdrop of the Old City walls, which reflected soothing shades of colorful light. It was a diverse crowd of young and older people, locals and tourists, many of whom danced in the streets. The event provided a unique meeting place for ancient history, traditional music and modern culture.
