Donna Donna Do

“Donna Donna”, once introduced by Joan Baez: the song was a political statement in Israel during WWII to encourage resistance vs. Nazi racism. Allow me to take it also as an anthem for all those who have the courage to escape…

  1. Quite superb in sentiment and in deed. I know the song well from days of yore. Your take on Cohen’s ‘Dance Me To The End Of Love’ – all about concentration camps would be interesting as an instrumental?
