Israeli Singer Famous in Yemen!

Israeli Singer Proves Surprise Hit in Yemen - Yoav Appel

Israeli singer Zion Golan has become an unlikely star in Yemen, an Arab country where his hit songs blare from cafes and taxis.

Known in Yemen as Ziyan Joulan, his songs - whose Arabic lyrics are written by his mother-in-law - are distributed on bootleg CDs and downloaded from the Internet.

"Yemeni music is in my heart and in my soul," said Golan, whose parents were born in Yemen.
