Benjamin Rubin

Arabic, Mediterranean, Spirituality and Rap: Israeli popular music today is vital and dynamic, complex, diverse, colourful and beautiful. In this eye-opening session, using a playlist of leading performing artists, Benjamin Rubin shows how popular music in Israel both reflects and affects changes in Israeli society. Original English translations of the lyrics will be provided.
