A Song Is Born: Over 40 years after the mythical children's album "The Sixteenth Lamb" came out, this morning a first and exciting reunion song of the wonderful band of musicians behind it is coming out. The song, "Pnina", is a small opera that tells of a street cat that Jonathan Geffen wrote about, and is accompanied by all the original lamb members - Yoni Rechter, Gidi Gov, Judith Ravitz and David Broza. The song will be featured on Richter's new children's album, whose name also coincides with the lamb - "June Giraffe," which will be out in a week. Watch the song clip (above).
"When this album creams skin and tendons, I thought it would be good to have skin and tendons too," Rechter told Walla last month! culture. "I approached Gidi, Judith, David and Jonathan, and they all immediately and joyfully answered. I had a beginning of Jonathan Geffen's song from time to time, called 'Pearl'. I started working on it and even sent each one his own voice. I really tried to make it easier, so they didn't need much Meetings. I did voice processing and orchestration. I sent everyone their voice. When we met there was some kind of start already. Of course there was more work. That's how it was skin cream and tendons. "
Asked why it took them so long to reunite, he said: "There was a possibility here to record a song and put it out, because there is the album and it comes out as a track from it. There was no reason to just record a song. I have more songs from all kinds of periods that I could do with the sheep members "But we don't have any project. And here I told them, I'm making an album and I want to put a lollipop - a song of the lamb. Everyone immediately got hooked and we had some purpose."
Richter also said it felt like a nostalgic union. "Once Sanderson says that in the hive, we all went through an experience that burned in our souls. So, too, the sheep is a kind of experience that is burned in everyone, and I think that built in each one has meaning. So it was definitely very good to meet."More in Walla! NEWS More in Walla! NEWS

Richter told Walla! A culture that spells this connection between the members of the Lamb is once again created in the air. "It happened about a year ago. The meetings were very pleasant. And very interesting. The meetings were not long. Everyone is very busy, and everyone is going abroad and filming for shows. Overall it was very functional and moved very pleasantly. I don't remember anything special beyond that. "
We also asked Richter if he was concerned that there would be people comparing the new children's album to "The 16th Sheep," given the fact that this is a formidable classic that is difficult to reproduce. "I don't think they'll start making comparisons," he said. "It's a very different album from The Sheep 16. Although there are some similarities, such as the fact that there are four people and there are also passages here, written by Silverstein and Jonathan Geffen, and we did skits. Small ones. But it's a different world, a different sound, a different image. To me it's very different. I have no idea what people will say, I can't expect it. "
Expected Stage Consolidation?
"Not that I know, but I will certainly encourage that."
Rechter returns to create for kids, as first published in Walla! Culture, after also signing classics for children with Eric Einstein, in the albums "I Was Once a Child" and "The Pigeon Lion and Blue Chicken" and in the children's opera "Itamar Meets a Rabbit".

In addition to Jonathan Gefen, the album will feature songs written by A. Hillel and Nira Harel. The album will also include a string of classic childhood songs with new tunes, "Little Jonathan", "The Little Bunny" and more.
