As from Paris, Tunis, Algiers or Rome, what do we know of what goes on in Israel apart from the stamping of combat boots – or worse? Muzzika of this month presents the latest musical releases from Israel and reminds us that the music scene today is quite lively and intense in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem or Jaffa with Jewish and Palestinian artists who, like everywhere in the world, love music above all else – and more so than politics!
This month’s highlight is Buika, the flamenco revelation of these last years, the little African girl who grew up among the gipsies of Palma de Majorca and today relays the immemorial Spanish music with all her soul.
Run to the nearest music shop and buy the latest CD by Ojos de Brujo, a gipsy band from Barcelona, now a cult in Spain! Try and stop dancing if you can!
