This week we explore the music of Israel’s most famous 70’s rock band, כוורת ( “beehive”) in Hebrew. Kaveret formed in 1973 and won much success around the world for their unique shows which often involved entire skits called “Sipurey Poogy” ( Poogy’s Tales.)
In 1974, the entire population of Israel was 3 million, yet 500,000 people reportedly attended one of their Tel Aviv performances that year.
Here’s a live 1984 version of their song “YoYah”.
