Israel: Tel Aviv - Rocking Israel

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Tel Aviv, Israel's biggest city, is a vibrant and striking blend of old and new. From the ancient port of Jaffa to modern skyscrapers and trendy nightclubs, Tel Aviv is the epicenter of Israel's arts scene and most of the country's top musicians live in and around the city. Music Voyager host Jacob Edgar meets Ehud Banai, the revered singer-songwriter who hails from one of Israel's most important musical families. Ehud invites Jacob to a mountaintop park overlooking the Tel Aviv skyline, where he performs his song "Caananite Blues." We then meet Karolina, a hip and popular singer with an outstanding head of hair and a voice to match. Karolina takes Jacob around the artistic and picturesque Neve Tzedek neighborhood, culminating in an intimate performance in her living room. He visits musician, producer and remixer Kutiman, who reveals the secrets of his famous YouTube mashups. Jacob's quest for the best hummus in Israel ends at Tel Aviv's legendary Abu Hassan restaurant, where hungry throngs assemble for a taste of their beguiling garbanzos. Finally, he joins quirky Balkan surf-rock band Boom Pam in the recording studio before hitting the clubs of Tel Aviv as they bands show off some of their favorite nightlife spots.
