The New Israeli Music: Building Spiritual Bridges
with Yaqub ibn Yusuf (in English)
In recent decades Israel has been producing a new kind of music which crosses the boundaries between East and West, Sephardic and Ashkenazic, and which also bridges the divide between secular and religious Israelis. Beginning with artists like Shlomo Bar and Yair Dalal, and continuing with Diwan HaLev, Meir Banai, Yontan Razel and others, we’ll listen to, discuss, and get a feeling for this new Israeli music. How did it develop? what are the words saying? and what does all this mean for the soul of Israel?
