The Israeli “folk” music seems to be mostly horas or klezmer music; Israeli music in general is quite a mishmash of influences, including jazz and pop, even some Latin stuff. Yemeni folk music seems to have grown into pop music, sometimes on historic themes.

Anyway, if you search for Yemeni folk music on Amazon you will find some pieces you can listen to samples of.

The only title I remember from my folk-dancing days is something like Hava Netze Babachol; but there were at least a couple of albums besides the one that was on.

Googling brings up scholarly articles that you have to pay for.

This is interesting — another bit of culture that has changed drastically in half a century. There must be sources (look for a folk dance club, especially one with old codgers in it).
