Mixed Musical Messages
We’re not only at the end of the year 5769, but also at the height of the cultural month in Tel Aviv. This month is a part of the city’s centennial celebrations, and as a part of these festivities the city of Brussels has given Tel Aviv a grand gift in the form of a flower carpet, now on display on Rabin Square.
I went to see it last night, and I must say that it was quite nice. Half a million flowers take up quite a lot of space, even when they’re tightly packed together.
The only thing I didn’t understand was the music played in the background. This is in fact something that I’ve thought of before during this year-long celebration. Of course they want to play music connected to Tel Aviv somehow, but it seems that any song that mentions the White City is kosher.
But who thought that it was a good idea to include this song?
