In celebration of the Jewish State’s 70th birthday, Daniel Stein Kokin leads us through a musical journey exploring the creation and reception of seven iconic Israeli songs, one for each decade of the country’s existence: three myth makers, three myth breakers, and one which takes off in a new direction. We’ll listen to the original artists and watch film clips of their performances. How did Israel shape Israeli music? How has Israeli music changed Israel?
