The Machane Yehuda marketplace, better known as the shuk, is where you can see fresh fruits and vegetables. But if you're lucky, you can also see Marsh Dondurma, a 15 piece band from Jerusalem. Percussionist Dotan Yogev talks about their new CD entitled Schuna, their performance at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat, and how Israeli audiences differ from others. Plus, new music from Tzfat based singer Avraham Meir, Psalms from Ron Kean and music from the Eilat Jazz Festival's new director, Avishai Cohen.
