Video: Yerachmiel and Ruach Hakodesh, "Burn The Best" (live studio)
The Israeli wedding band Ruach Hakodesh, fronted by Yerachmiel "Rocky" Ziegler, has released a live studio version of "Burn The Best", a new original reggae tune for Hanukkah composed by Ziegler.
The Ruach Hakodesh roster reads like a Who's Who in Jewish alternative music; at various times, the lineup has included former members of Hamakor, Moshav Band, Soulfarm, Yaakov Chesed, Yood, Pey Dalid, and Aharit Hayamim, as well as notable solo artists like Lazer Lloyd and Josh "Mr. Shabbos" Alpert. Ziegler, for his part, has four albums under his belt, including one with Aharon Razel, and fronts several bands. The musicians in this session include Aharit's Rafi Barkats on saxophone and Achiya Cohen on piano.
