Uvnei Yerushalayim - Shira Choir ft. Yanky Green

It’s Chodesh Av, a time of mourning throughout the global Jewish family. The communal mood is tuned to a minor key, as everyone commemorates the historical weight of this particular month.

Somewhere in {Brooklyn}, Shira is finding a way to give voice to the moment. The song of choice is Uvnei Yerushalayim, originally composed by Moshe Morgenstern and Shlome Cohen for the latter’s Lemalah album.

In this rendition, the only instruments present are the powerful, layered Shira voices, and the pleaful soloing of Yanky Green—a cherubic voice and a "Yiddish Nachas" alumnus reminiscent of the tinokkos shel rabbin who will usher in the coming of Mashiach.

Once again, under master choir conductor Yoely Horowitz, Shira proves that when speaking the words of music, nothing but the voice is needed to strike the right chord. Or bassline.
