With Israel still very much at war, the country’s ‘new normal’ continues to permeate its music. Yes, some of the new music is very raw, very painful, and very powerful. Other songs are as seemingly as mundane as can be, as Israeli music continues to shift onto topics other than the war. Still, nearly every song you hear these days can be interpreted differently due to today’s complicated reality. Take, for example, Israel’s 2024 Eurovision entry, ‘Hurricane.’ Even though the song sounds completely ‘pareve,’ we all know it’s about Israel’s current state of affairs and the pain so many of us are feeling. You’ll hear the song this week, along with many other new releases…all guaranteed to make you think, make you cry, make you smile, and make you connect to Israel on a deeper level. (Original Air Date: March 17, 2024)
