Ofra Haza: Desert Wind
Chuck Eddy, Rolling Stone, 22 March 1990
'YA BE YE', the first single from Yemenite thrush Ofra Haza's Desert Wind, is a song of maternal advice, a Middle Eastern rejoinder to the Shirelles' 'Mama Said' and the Supremes' 'You Can't Hurry Love'. "My mother always told me don't forget/Remember who you are/Listen to the voice/That plays in your head/Make the right choice," Haza sings.
