Barra
Vaynikehu
O. Aldema (Instrumental)
Nina presented this Israeli folk song performed as an instrumental at a spring 1963 concert at Carnegie Hall. The program listed the song as "Vaynikehu", but Simone admitted to the audience that "since we don't know how to pronounce the name, we call it a tune in 5-4 rhythm".
