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.
On this episode we are in conversation with Gil Karpas, a journalist and event promoter based in London, also a respected expert on the evolution of Israeli popular music. We spoke with him about how immigration has shaped the sound and diversity of voices in Israeli music since the country’s founding seven decades ago.
