One of the traditional parties at the Eurovision Song Contest is the Israeli party, which took place in the Euroclub and was open to all accredited press and fans. The Israeli ambassador in Stockholm has also been among the guests and was even on the dancefloor.
One of the highlights beside of the buffet with falafel and salads it the popular “Hora” dance. It has all started with “Hi” from Ofra Haza (2nd, place Munich, 1983), then “Hora” by Avi Toledano (2nd place, Harrogate 1982) and finished with “Kan” by Duo Datz (3rd place, Rome 1991). The people on the dancefloor form circles, hold their hands and have fun.
Of course there were some guests singers among the crowd: Nicky Byrne from Ireland, Eneda Tarifa from Albania, Amir from France, Zoë from Austria, Poli from Bulgaria and of course the Israeli singer Hovi Star.

My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
