Transcript of Music: Reflection of Society - Limmud Conference UK 2015

Israeli Music:
Reflection of Society

"תיב אלל םירזוחה" =
"Hachozrim LeLo Bayit" - Hachizbatron 1949
In the early years...

Israeli folk music and dancing are a
social tradition since the days of the Aliyot, and became popular with the establishment of Israel.
In Israel, nursery and primary school children are taught the traditional folk dances like "Tzadik KaTamar"
"Tzadic Hatamar" "רמתכ קידצ" - םע ידוקיר
1948: New Israel
תויאבצה תוקהלה
The Lahakot Ha'Tzvaiyot, (the IDF bands), greatly influenced the new Israeli music culture. Their prominence reflected the central role of the army - both in defence of the new nation - and as a key place for social integration
The Navy Band - 1967
"הקסח" = Hasake
Israel's increasing self-confidence saw music evolve - it wasn't just about just the serious stuff anymore
(I love to Sleep)
"Ani Ohev Lishon" 1970
- Arik Einstein
"The Automatic Dancer" 1976
by Tzvika Pik
Disco Music is all the rage -

"חישמל םיכחמ"
"Waiting for the Massiah" 1985
Shalom Chanoch
"ינגב חרפה" :1982

"ביבא לתב הרוק לוכה"
Dudu Aharon and Sharif
the IDF Bands ruled the
Israeli Music Scene
into the 60's
The time of legendary Israeli musicians, such as Arik Einstein, Kaveret, Gazoz and more..
do you think you can dance like the dancers in the clip?
two very important Israeli Music Genres developed in this decade: Rock and Mizrachit (Eastern Music)
The music of the nineties reflects the optimism of the period;
the Israeli
was born!
also, Pop in Israel is moving to the next stage -
The New Millennium
the music in Israel increasingly received its inspiration from music outside of Israel
Israeli music was no longer intended just for a home audience. Israel's music went global!
"תיחרזמ הקיזומ",
Eastern Music, is still VERY popular in Israel, and has now crossed ethnic divides. It has even developed into a few different sub-genres.
it's a lot of fun to dance to!
Israeli Influence
Asaf Avidan
Ester Rada - "Life Happens"
Joel Meyer
Educational Coordinator for the Shlichim Delegation
The Jewish Agency for Israel
The optimism within Israel is reflected in Israel's overseas - Israel is increasingly becoming viewed as an open, dynamic, exciting and liberal society
Singing in English is less about reaching a wider audience and more about music as an art form - a universal form of expression
"Emtza Ha'Laila B'Kfar" "רפכ הלילה עצמא"
Harel Moyal
"Ke'ev Shel Lochamim" "םימחול לש באכ"
Idan Amedi
Unfortunately the optimism of the 90s has been replaced in the years since with worry over the security situation and prospects for peace.
This new reality has been reflected in the music of Israel and those who are making it...
'Attack! Carry out terror strikes!'
Summer 2014
' Ta'aseh Biguim!'
Summer 2014
הדמעש איהו
Yonatan Razel
Music inspired by Jewish Text (and not just by religious artists) has become increasingly common. Orthodox artists have also crossed into the mainstream
Cafe Shachor Hazak - "Yihye Beseder"
