Biography

Ha’biluim is a theatrical rock group formed in 1996 by Noam Inbar (Vocals & Bass) and Yami Wisler (Electric Guitar) as a reaction to the deep sense of boredom they experienced listening to contemporary Israeli popular music.

The Habiluim’s songs are grotesque accounts of their lives as citizens of a collapsing country filled with corruption, militarism and racism. In their song ‘Shaul Mofaz’ the former minister of defense is riding a snow slay from house to house giving out amputated organs of dead soldiers to their worried mothers. The song ‘Etzot Me’Imma’ (Motherly Advice) is a mother’s recommendation to her daughter to have an abortion, so her life won’t be ruined like her mother’s were when she was born.

The grim contents of the band’s songs are often accompanied by lively dancing music evolved from the Kleizmer sounds of the Jewish ghetto, combined with Russian and Balkan folk music and often also inspired by composers such as Kurt Weil and Hans Eisler.

Through the years the Ha’Biluim have preformed around Israel and gained a cult status. In 2001 the group was signed by major Israeli label N.M.C and recorded their first album (self titled), produced by Barry Saharoff (Minimal Compact, Phortisaharoff). The album won critical and commercial success and made thousands of Israeli teenagers from both sexes grow beards.

In 2007 The Ha’Biluim finished recording their second album “Bereavement and Failure”, produced by Tamir Muskat (Balkan Beat Box).
