Alejandro Cohen w/guest Michael Cohen – Tradition & Transition: Voices of a New Israel, episode 1
Thursday, December 14 2017
09:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Tradition and Transition is a six part radio program series exploring the voices of a new Israel. In each episode, your host, Alejandro Cohen and co-host Chris Kissel will explore the creative process, and the path of Israeli artists in discovering and finding their identity in a nation that is young yet holds ancient traditions as part of its heritage.
Episode one will feature Michael Cohen a Tel Aviv-based producer and rapper with deep Los Angeles connections. His brilliant solo debut was released this year by Stones Throw, and he spent some formative years making music here and connecting with the scene. But he’s also a well-spring of knowledge and perspective on Israeli culture. We took advantage of both, gathering Cohen’s perspective on the fascinating country from which he hails and digging into his own projects — the instrumental Cohenbeats project and his Hebrew rap duo, Cohen@Mushon.
Tune in daily starting December 14th through December 19 from 9am to 9.30am to catch each episode live on dublab.com or find it on demand in the dublab archives. where additional materials can be found.
