This year, besides marking 70 (!) years of Israel's independence, we also mark 40 years from the first time Israel won the Euro-vision competition with the song A Ba Ni Bi
What is the Euro-vision?
The Euro-vision is the longest-running annual international TV song competition. It was held primarily among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union. Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio, and then the audience casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition.
