HAMBURG, Germany (VIP-NEWS) — Israel, especially Tel Aviv, is full of musical talents and some of them – like Balkan Beat Box or Asaf Avidan – have been seen in the past years performing across the world. Now it's time to present some fresh acts which are stars at home, but still unknown abroad.
The "Tune in Tel Aviv" showcase on Thursday, September 22nd 2011, from the Israel Export and International Cooperation Institute (IEICI) within this year’s Reeperbahn Festival present some of the most exciting newcomers. A perfect chance to acquire a taste of pop and rock music from the young vivacious Middle Eastern metropolis.
"Our partnership with the Reeperbahn Festival this year is a first step in bringing together the European and Israeli music market," says Mira Geshel from IEICI. "We are pleased to finally present these bands to the music fans and professionals in Germany."
The bands selected for the showcase present a mixture of energetically pop and rock sounds with tastes of hard electronic beats as well as danceable pop-hymns, Blues, Indie, Soul, Funk or Rock'n'Roll. They mix up intense sounds with reflective lyrics, nonsense and self-criticism and prove Israel’s unique sound in pop music.
All bands and some more are presented on the compilation "Tune in Tel Aviv" (Finetunes) which will be released on September 16th digitally.
