Yemenite singer, who was famous
in East Germany (DDR) of 1964 and 1965.
She sang oriental Jewish songs in Hebrew, Yiddish, English and German language,
which she performed in tv- and radio-shows and in several concerts.
Hear excerpts of some of her in Germany recorded songs
and read German biography of her here:

Recently I found these two articles among others about her in an Israeli newspaper archive:
Article of 1960:
It says that Havazelet Ron is a singer born in Aden (Yemen)
and lives now for 17 years in Israel.
So she apparently also was a singer in Israel before she went to Germany.
I found out that Havazelet Ron recorded some nice songs in 1961 in Tel Aviv.
Here you can listen to one of them:
Update of 2013:
Finally I found
out the mystery about Havazelet Ron, when her son contacted me.
There unfortunately I learned that Havazelet sadly passed away this February.
I wish we would have been in contact before...
After Havazelet Ron, (born as Havazelet Damari), was famous in East Germany (DDR),
she met someone in West Germany and got married in 1968.
Before her son was born in 1969 she left the entertainment business and became a housewife.
The young family happily lived in Mannheim (West Germany) until 1980.
Then they moved to Israel and stayed until 1984, when they went to Los Angeles (USA).
Later Havazelet Ron worked as a kindergarden teacher and enjoyed her grandchildren.
During her years in the entertainment business Havazelet recorded several vinyl records,
performed in various tv shows and toured with a group through several countries (e.g. Bulgaria).
