Ariel Zilber was born in Tel Aviv. His mother, Bracha Zefira was a singer and his father, Ben Ami Zilber, played the violin in the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra. He attended the Hadassim boarding school on Kibbutz Gan Shmuel until the age of fifteen. After losing a foot in a gun accident, he returned to Tel Aviv and began studying the trumpet.He spent several years in England and France building up a career, but eventually returned to Tel Aviv.
Later in life, Zilber became a religious Jew and a follower of the Lubavicher rebbe. He was a resident of Alei Sinai, but now lives with his wife on Moshav Gitit.
In the 1970s, he established the innovative rock band Tamuz, with Shalom Hanoch, and later headed the group Brosh. His songs "Rutzi, Shmulik Koreh Lach" ("Run, Shmulik Is Calling You"), "Ani Shochev Li Al Hagav" ("Lying on My Back"), "Ten Li Koach" ("Give Me Strength"), "Milliard Sinim" ("A Billion Chinese") and others were known for their amusing, somewhat bizarre lyrics.
In the 1980s, he launched a solo career. His music spans various genres, from rock, pop, hip-hop and Arab music to Ethiopian-inspired music. His album "Ha'atalef Vehatarnigol" ("The Bat and the Rooster") included four Hasidic melodies composed by Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh.According to Zilber, the title song is taken from a Talmudic analogy in which a rooster crows excitedly as a new day dawns while the bat lives in darkness.
