Israel`s history in 11 songs (from the 1930s to 2000).

My booklets –

Music has the power to capture the energy of its time. In this video I`ve chosen 11 songs that tell the history of Israel from the Yishuv to the Israeli version of `American Idol`.

I have added subtitles to the video. If you can’t see them, click the CC button in the bottom right-hand corner (or top right-hand corner) of the video.

The songs I talk about in the video:
Malu Asameinu Bar (Our Barns Are Full Of Grain) – performed by Gevatron
Hareut (The Friendship) – performed by Shoshana Damari
Ilu Tziporim (If Only Birds) – performed by Nahal Band
