If They Play It, It Will Come: Eliyahu & the Qadim Ensemble with "Im Nin'alu"

Eliyahu & the Qadim Ensemble brings us Im Nin'alu as our random tune for today. From San Francisco, Eliyahu & the Qadim Ensemble features instrumentation such as the ney, oud, Arabic percussion, baglama saz, divan saz and persian sitar, and they feature Arabic, Jewish, Turkish Sufi, Hebrew-Yemenite, Armenian, Ladino and Moroccan music in their repertoire. "Qadim" is a word found in both Arabic and Hebrew and means both "ancient" and "that which will come." Im Nin'alu can be found on their 2014 CD Eastern Wind.
