Sounds Israeli: The music of Omer Adam

(Sounds Israeli is edited by Stefan Babjak)

This week’s song was stuck in my head the second I heard it on the radio, and I’ve heard more than a few friends at Ulpan humming it to themselves.

Omer Adam was on the Israeli version of American Idol in 2009 but was disqualified when it came to light that he was only 15 at the time – instead of the required 16. His popularity followed him anyway and in 2013 his song “Tel Aviv” became the anthem for that city’s Gay Pride celebration.
