Oct 01, 2007 Published under Art, Middle East, OneVoice Movement



Boaz Sharabi

Considered the greatest Israeli soul singer, Sharabi began his career as a drummer and a percussionist and later became a successful singer. Since his return from the USA in the 90′s, he has been prominent as one of Israel’s most diverse and successful stars, uniquely combining Pop, Rock and ethnic Eastern-Arab music.


Ninet Tayeb

The successful singer and actress started her career as the first winner of the Israeli version of American Idol in August 2003. Since then, the young soldier from Kiriyat Gat has managed to conquer the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Israelis, and recently even came out with a new album that won her the title of 2007′s best female singer.


Mosh Ben Ari

A former part of the successful "Sheva" band, Ben Ari combines soft rock with a pinch of eastern Arab ethnicity and has published three very successful albums since June 2001. His last and best selling album included a special tribute to the legendary Led Zeppelin band, and he recently preformed with the dance singer Sean Paul in his last visit to Israel.


Knessiyat Hasehel

Coming from the southern city of Sderot, this unique band erupted into the public realm after the unprecedented success of their self-titled 3rd album after years of hard work in a small southern Tel Aviv apartment. Knessiyat Hasehel has created a special blend of rock, new wave and Eastern-Arab origins.


Ehud Banai

Banai, who writes and composes all of his songs, combines his Jewish roots with social and political protest which comes forth in an original mélange of eastern sound with western guitars, 60’s harmony and the British new wave. Banai’s uniqueness positioned him as one of Israel’s most diverse and prominent artists which awarded him the best singer, best writer and best album award for his last album in 2005.



Considered Israel’s most important, successful and influential band, Mashina recently won the “All Times Band” title, and sold over 400,000 copies of their albums.


Keren Peles

Peles, a young successful singer that broke through in 2005, started as a song writer and has since pursued a successful singing career that awarded her a golden album, the 2006 discovery of the year award, the culture minister award, and the best song of the year award for 2 consecutive years.


Ha Dag Nachash

One of Israel’s most successful and best known bands, famous for their sharp and critical language, Ha Dag Nachash makes “Zionist hip hop” without taking prisoners or skipping social and political wrongdoings. It was this bold irreverence that granted them the privilege of being the first band in the world to be invited to perform in Hebrew in an official NBA match.


Miriam Tukan

Miriam Tukan, AKA the Israeli Fayrouz, broke through in the last Kohav Nolad show (the Israeli version of American Idol) with her special voice and touching renditions of known Hebrew songs. Tukan, a Christian Arab from the village of Eiblin in the north of the country, gave unique performances portraying the desired coexistence with her amazing mix between Hebrew songs and Arab trills.


Rami Fortis

Considered one of Israel’s most influential musical pioneers, Fortis greatly affected the Israeli rock scene style which gave him the nickname “the Crazy”. He is known for his musical cooperation with Mashina’s Shlomi Bracha, Berry Sakharof and many others that brought Israeli rock to its glory days.
