Mariachi Jerusalem, known for their musical prowess and passion for blending genres, has invested months of hard work in producing this rendition, promising to deliver a truly moving musical experience. "Shalom Alejem" has been an anthem of peace and Shabbat welcome in Jewish culture, and the mariachi interpretation adds a new exotic dimension.
