Holy Horns! A Shofar Played As A Musical Instrument!!

This is an incredible version of one of my favorite traditional Jewish songs, "Mi HaIsh."

Yet it is being played in the most non-traditional way... by taking the most traditional Jewish instrument - a shofar - and playing it like an actual musical instrument and not just a horn like we hear on Rosh HaShana. Who knew it could make beautiful music?

The song is a musical adaptation of 3 lines from the Chapter 34 of the Book of Psalms:

13 - Who is the man who desires life, who loves days to see good therein?

14 - Guard your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceitfully.

15 - Shun evil and do good, seek peace and pursue it.

יגמִֽי־הָ֖אִישׁ הֶֽחָפֵ֣ץ חַיִּ֑ים אֹ֘הֵ֥ב יָ֜מִ֗ים לִרְא֥וֹת טֽוֹב:

.ידנְצֹ֣ר לְשֽׁוֹנְךָ֣ מֵרָ֑ע וּ֜שְׂפָתֶ֗יךָ מִדַּבֵּ֥ר מִרְמָֽה:

טוס֣וּר מֵ֖רָע וַֽעֲשֵׂה־ט֑וֹב בַּקֵּ֖שׁ שָׁל֣וֹם וְרָדְפֵֽהוּ:פֵֽהוּ:דְפֵֽהוּ:דְפֵֽהוּ:

For those who know Hebrew, there is an explanation of the song and its history here:
