Sounds Israeli: The music of ‘Fools of Prophecy’


I had the pleasure of seeing the band Shotei Hanevuah (Fools of Prophecy) perform live during my first and only trip to Israel prior to making Aliyah, and I’ll likely forever associate their sound – a fusion of dub reggae, hip-hop, dance and eastern Mediterranean music – with the magical time when I first fell in love with Eretz Yisrael.

Here’s a very raw version of their hit song ‘Ein Ani‘, performed in front of an IDF unit in 2012.

  1. That was awesome! Fantastic crowd, too, of course…

    We’re still in the middle of the Philadelphia Jewish Musical Festival (on ’til Thursday!), and though all official venues are booked, if those guys and gals want to drop on over here, I can offer up the mini-concrete-‘backyard’ behind my Kensington rowhouse for a show! ;)

  2. Thanks Jay. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to a Philly rowhouse…you’re making me quite nostalgic.
