Special Havdallah Program: The Music of Israel: 1917-1947 with Hayim Kobi

May 9, 2015 West Newton 0

Join Hayim Kobi as he traces the origins of Israeli music in an audio-visual program focusing on the years leading up to the formation of the state of Israel. The immigration waves between 1917 and 1947 yielded new song forms and styles that blended Eastern European with Middle Eastern conventions. Among the pioneers who built the foundation of Israel emerged a new generation of composers and poets who set the musical background to the historical events of that period.

Hayim Kobi is a local authority on the history of 20th century music, delivering talks about wide-ranging topics from Jazz and Folk to the great composers and performers of popular music. His talks are rich with audio and video media and focus on the music within its historical context. Hayim has a number of CDs under his belt as a solo musician and part of the ethnic-ambient band Chillgroove, as well as a film score to the silent movie classic “The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari.”
