Alternative Music from Israel

Israel’s initial attitude towards rock music was negative in the 1960’s.  But towards the end of the decade, rock and roll began to gain legitimacy.  Western musicians arrived in Israel and influences of the pop revolution began to permeate local cultures.  The 1970’s saw an emerging progressive rock scene.  The 1980’s saw a number of rock bands become popular and 1991 was the year of the breakthrough for Israeli alternative rock bands and singers.  Today rock music is still very popular with new bands and artists emerging all the time.
