Sounds Israeli: The music of Ketem Paz

(Sounds Israeli is edited by Stefan Babjak)

This week was צלילים בעיר העתיקה (Sounds of the Old City) in Jerusalem, an amazing and varied music festival now in its third year. The city set up stages throughout the Old City and bands of all types are performing for free. This week we’ll be listening to roots reggae music from כתם פז (Ketem Paz, literally “Golden Stain”.) Ketem Paz has Yemenite musical influences and lyrics that are both religious and secular. They are also an amazing band to see live. Enjoy.
