An unusual new venture is underway these days. The first musical work from the “K’fitzas Haderech” series is published on Rosh Chodesh Kislev, and opens the signal for a monthly tradition, Ltd.: Each Rosh Chodesh, another song in the series will be distributed.

That’s where the idea was born to make ‘K’fitzas Haderech‘ for some past hits, give them an innovative electronic twist and combine nostalgia with the future generation.
