(Ep. 9) Sof Onat Hatapuzim: The Story of Israeli Rock. Ed. Yoav Kutner. IBA, 1998.

What's your opinion on music and politics? Can music influence and change? Does music really have the power to change? ETHNIC ROCK  In the context of Israeli rock the term 'ethnic' means 'oriental'  By the late 1990s Israeli Rock underwent some degree of "ethnicization"  Rock (mode of vocal delivery, electric guitars) with elements of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern music (modal, ornament, rhythmic patterns, instruments or electronic imitation of these instruments)  The difference between M&M and Ethnic Rock is the vocal delivery (rock vocals vs nasal singing)  Ethnic Rock singers saw themselves as superior to M&M  By the 1990s the difference was a little blurred with bands such as Teapacks  Teapacks o Mixed Reggae, Raï, African Pop and Rock o Embodied a return to the idea of East-West fusion which was the ideal of SLI composers, yet this time it was an expression of Israeliness rather than nationalistic ideology o Their music combines rock, Hip-hop, Moroccan-Jewish-Arab music, electro-dance, M&M, and Kaveret type of music and humor  The song 'Push The Button' is a good example of this o Being originally from the southern town of Sderot, lyrics are often about living in the periphery , neglected by Israeliness in various styles of Hebrew o The band simultaneously plays the role of both an outsider and an insider by mixing rock, which has become Israeliness' main mode of expression and Mizrahiyut (East)  Mix rock with middle eastern elements  Their way of saying "we're both East and West" o Incorporated Eastern music techniques:  Singing and playing in unison for extended section of a song  Heterophony (simultaneous variation of a single melody)  Vocal and instrumental improvisation in fluctuating rhythm  Quotations of Moroccan songs  Use of microtones (any interval that is smaller than a semitone) and Arab rhythmic patterns
