Rita's Iranian CD Released in America


Popular Israeli singer Rita has released her latest album My Joys in the United States and other countries. Because the lyrics are sung in Farsi, the language of Iran, it has made the news in several American media outlets. The New York Times, Fox News, the Huffington Post and others have recently featured articles about the Persian musical offering performed by Israeli musicians. Rita was born in the Jewish community of Iran and moved to Israel with her parents as a young child.
