Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Rika Zarai


Here is a famous song performed (in German and French) in 1967 by Rika Zarai.
Rika Zaraï (born in 1938) is an Israeli singer and writer.
Rika Gozman (later Zarai) was born in Jerusalem. In the 1950s, the Israeli writer, Aharon Megged, wrote a musical for the IDF Central Command entertainment troupe about five soldiers falling in love with five country girls. In 1956, it was produced commercially by the Ohel theater starring Rika Zarai. The music was written by her husband Yochanan Zarai, with lyrics and melodies by Naomi Shemer.
In 1969, Zarai rose to fame with her songs Casatchok and Alors je chante, the French version of Vivo Cantando. She went on to have a successful career in Europe, where she popularized Israeli classic songs such as Hava Nagila, Yerushalayim shel zahav and Hallelujah.
Zarai sings in Hebrew, English, French, Italian, Spanish and German. She lives in Paris but visits Israel periodically.
Enjoy her style!
