Biography

נקמת הטרקטור {Nikmat HaTraktor; Tractor’s Revenge) is an Israeli rock band.

The band was established in 1988 in Tel Aviv by singer and bass player Avi Balali, keyboardist Ilan Green, and guitarist Ofir Leibovitz. Other band members include Eyal Parson Shachar on keyboards and Aviv Barak on drums. The band’s name is a tribute to Fortisakharof’s 1988 song of the same name.

After being rejected by a number of record labels, the band was finally signed by Nana Records. Their debut album, Nikmat HaTraktor, was released in 1990. It was produced by Bari Sacharof (of FortiSakharof), and contained a number of their hits, the prominent ones including: “Mischak Shel Dma’ot” (The Crying Game), “Adon HaSelichot” (Master of Forgiveness) based on the Sephardic Jewish incantation of the same name, and “Afifonim” (Kites), a Hebrew cover version of Simon Dupree And The Big Sound’s song.

As a result of their multi-disciplinary musical talents Nikmat HaTraktor expanded into other musical areas contributing significantly to Israeli theatre, dance, and other stage productions. They had a lot of success in Israel and abroad appearing with the Batsheva Dance Company in their “Kyr” production, for which Nikmat HaTraktor wrote the music, as well as Yossi Pollack’s Othello.
