        THE MUSICAL TEAM BALKANEL WHOSE FOUNDER IS THE BALKANS INSTITUTE FOR THE HEBREW LANGUAGE STARTED THE PROJECT »THE SONG OF SONGS«  -  THE OLDEST SONGS OF THE WORLD

The Balkans Institute for the Hebrew Language, by virtue of the idea and in the organization by the headmaster Zeljko Stanojevic, started one very interesting project jointly with certain number of volonteers and the Institute friends.  Namely, the successful cooperation was realized with Michael Levy from England who is one of the most famous ancient music historian. He succeeded in decoding and playing the oldest cuneated records with notes from the Region of presentday Israel and other biblical countries.  Using both those melodies/tunes, and a few old original Israeli songs, the texts from the Song of Songs and the Psalms were translated as well as the modern arrangements in order to be accessible to nowadays listeners.  With that kind of music and text, the singers were chosen who would sing those interesting compositions. The Project is in the phase of recording in the studio Boom in Belgrade under the direction nad production of Mr Milos Stojanovic. The organizer and the translator of the Hebrew language is professor Zeljko Stanojevic. The poetic renditions were done by Zeljko Stanojevic, Ivana Stojanovic and Edvard Ahmeti Markovic. The performers are the orchestra Nicos, Greece, Michael Levy’s orchestra, England, the orchestra Manouche, Canada, the orchestra Bustan Abraham, Israel, the orchestra Maria Kirilisa, Argentina and the orchestra Milos Stojanovic, Serbia... Two songs with oriental-style (love songs), being the songs of Hebrew origin, will be played, arranged and sung in the Hebrew language in the production of Aleksandar Sofronijevic and his orchestra.  The singers are Zorica Vukovic, Milan Mrdovic, Predrag Sisic, Sasa Vasic and Mira Aleksic. We expect that CD with 15 numbers will be published up to July 1st, 2010. The plan for promo single will be published till June 15th, 2010.
