WHAT ARE THE TOP 10 JEWISH POP SONGS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD?

Following this year's packed-out talk at Limmud Oz, Gary 'Yid Rock' Holzman returns with an encore multi-media presentation of “Jewish Pop That Changed the World” at the Sydney Jewish Museum.  
 
Of the millions of pop songs written in the modern era very few have transcended their brief popularity to become true classics. These rare gems somehow managed to capture a specific time and place, defined generations, challenged accepted norms and, sometimes, even changed the course of history. A sizable number of such songs were written by Jewish songwriters. Join ‘Yid Rock’ as he counts down the Top Ten popular songs written by Jews that have literally changed the world – and in the process discover the incredible Jewish stories behind these modern-day classics.

Sunday 27 October
3:30pm @ Sydney Jewish Museum

FRIENDS OF KAVERET PERFORM 'SIPUREY POOGY' 

1970’s band Kaveret are widely revered as the Beatles of Israel. With an unprecedented run of hits and songs that have become standards, this rare combination of talent reached its peak with the release of their album Sipurey Poogy in 1973.

This album combined 7 part vocal harmonies with sophisticated yet accessible instrumentation, yielding an album that truly captured the zeitgeist of Israel in the 70’s, to the point where one third of Israel’s population turned out for the launch of the album. All of the songs on ‘Sipurey Poogy’ have become part of the canon and textbook of Israeli music that are still being performed and emulated by today’s stars.

Special guests in the band include:  ARIA winner LIOR – guitar, vocals, APRA-winner OLD MAN RIVER (OHAD REIN) – guitar, vocals, ADAM STARR – guitar, vocals, SIMON STARR – bass, vocals, JONATHAN SKOVRON – guitar, vocals, SCOTT GRIFFITHS – keyboard, vocals and JULIA BULIA BEBENEK – drums.

Following on from their exciting, sell-out shows in Melbourne, HaChaverim Shel Kaveret are going to perform the album in full as well as other favourite Kaveret songs.
