You Are Going To Fall In Love With This Israeli Musical Duo

Need a pick-me-up on a very dreary Tuesday morning? Check out this Israeli couple singing their new original Hebrew single Rega Mehuvan (Moment) for some lovely, unadulterated joy.

Yoni and Nina Tokaye, who go by the stage name Yonina, have already racked up more than 100,000 Facebook views for their new music video, along with a string of happy commenters — many of whom don’t actually speak Hebrew.

“I cant really understand a word of it, but I just love the music,” one wrote.

“Tho I dont understand any word and still best thing ever heard.” another added.

The Tel Aviv based couple are also known for bringing their baby along for their music videos — including this pitch-perfect rendition of Matisyahu’s hit song “One Day.” You know, in case we needed an adorableness overload.
