Back by popular demand! Gordon Dale will be leading a class on the evolution of Israeli music. Contemporary Israeli society vibrantly discusses and debates hot button issues, with wildly diverse opinions participating in the conversation. In this presentation we will see how Israeli musicians from across the political and religious landscapes have expressed their identities and convictions through the medium of music. Students will walk away with a nuanced understanding of the colorful political and religious spectra in Israeli society, providing important insight into the diverse range of practices and opinions in the country today, and will hear fantastic music from some of Israel's top artists.
