Since the early days of Zionism, music played a critical role in shaping the image of the "new Jew" and the Land of Israel. The pioneers sought to form a new style of music in order to distinguish themselves from the Diaspora. Elements were borrowed from Arabic music, traditional Yemenite and Eastern Jewish music, all created a new musical aesthetic aimed to evoke the image of biblical times and ancient Hebrews. In the lecture, Dr. Rubinstein explores fascinating musical examples soundscape and unique sonorities related to developing image of the Land of Israel from the early 1920's to the 1980's.
