2002, Revisited

It was the height of the second intifada.  In the old city, The Cardo was deserted.  Restaurants in the new city didn’t bother to open.  That year’s Zimriyah attracted almost no singers from abroad.  Everywhere we went, Israelis rushed over to thank us just for being there.  Arabs tailed us to plead with us to visit their shops in the deserted shuk.

I didn’t know it at the time, but that was when Noa and Mira started their partnership.  “We Can Work It Out” was their first jointly recorded song.
