Biography

Habrera Hativeet is an Israeli band founded in 1977 in Beer Yaakov, led by Shlomo Bar.

Bar and the band members have created a unique musical style, which can now be characterized as "world music rock" - influenced by traditional Arabic and North African music; Indian and Persian styles; From hymns; But also a progressive rock of the 1970s. The content of the songs was also different from pop songs that were prevalent on Israeli radio in the 1970s, or from the music of the "cassette singers" and combined political protest against the discrimination of Sephardic Jews in Israel and against other social injustices.
In addition, the bar often used lyrical style or poetry of poets. One of the band's best-known songs, Children is Joy (to the words of the playwright Yehoshua Sobol, from the play "Krize"), was broadcast on the radio despite a sharp protest against the birth policy and ethnic discrimination in the State of Israel due to a catchy melody . Besides the ensemble, the band composed songs by other poets: Avraham Halfi, Erez Biton, Leah Goldberg, Natan Zach.
