Yemeni sisters’ Arabic song takes Israel by storm

The monster hit Habib Galbi – performed by a band of three Israeli sisters -Tair, Liron and Tagel- of Yemeni background–has also proven a major success abroad, amassing 12 lakh hits. The song is based on a tune that their grandmother – who was born in Ibb, Yemen, but moved to Israel in 1949 – taught them. It marks the first time in Israeli history that an Arabic-language song has managed to top the charts, and its positive reception in countries Israel has been at war with for nearly 7 decades has many wondering if the song is a sign of a cultural thaw. Born in the tiny desert town of Shaharut in the Arava Valley, the Haim sisters began singing Yemenite songs from a young age.
