“Until we have a cure for cancer, everyone who joins the war on it is a pioneer. I hope that many more will join and help fight it.” – Dudu Fisher

Pioneers For A Cure - Songs To Fight Cancer is pleased to announce the iTunes release of 'Israeli Songs To Fight Cancer' Volumes 1 & 2. The collection features top contemporary Jewish artists from across the musical spectrum, reviving the music of the pioneers of Israel, The Chalutzim. The cover art is by fine artist Mira Sasson, capturing the rolling hills of Jerusalem.

As with all music released by Pioneers For A Cure, each individual artist selects the cancer charity of his or her choice to receive the proceeds from the sale of the music.

Volume 1 features imaginative interpretations of classic pioneer songs, beginning with a hip-hop and R&B-infused version of Israel's national anthem, 'Hatikvah.' Other highlights include Broadway star Dudu Fisher's version of 'Saleinu,' the frenetic jazz-rock of Hasidic New Wave's 'Holem Tza’adi,' and the acoustic, Beatles-meets-Brazilian version 'Hinei Achal'la Bachalili' by Pharaoh's Daughter.

Volume 2 features a more traditional take on the pioneer songs, beginning with 'Am Yisrael Chai,' featuring over 40 artists and mixed by the legendary Bob Clearmountain, whose credits include work with Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Bryan Adams, Robbie Williams, Toto, Bon Jovi, and countless others. Other highlights include the flamenco 'Ve'ulai' by David Broza, the Middle Eastern pop 'Alei Giva' by Avi Piamenta and the traditional klezmer 'Kuma Echa' by Alicia Svigals.
