Amichai’s Top 50/42 “El HaGan” Bach/Within You
אל הגן/בך

There are a few, a handful really, songs that got into my veins, my hard-drive reserved for the inner DJ that knows how to bring them up at the right moment of despair, longing, pleasure and presence.
Amir sang this one night during a set, 20+ years ago, entering the garden, inviting us to pilgrimage with him in there, into the secret of what gardens are, and love, and secrets. His voice, calming, caressing. The words, again and again, taking me inside. Enter the garden. Sometimes I sing it with my version – El Ha Yam – into the Sea.
This clip, shot in Venice featured Amir Paiss and our other brother – Gil Ron Shama, who wrote this together with Amir, who also has this gorgeous version of the song, featuring his wedding day, another garden.

Let’s meet there.

Shabbat Shalom.
