Berry Sakharof (Israel)ברי סחרוף

This week featuring Israel

BERRY SAKHAROF

Israeli rock artist’s Berry Sakharof’s beginning as a musician was at a 70’s progressive rock band named “Halom Kosmi”, but it wasn’t until much later in the 90’s when he recieved critical acclaim.  During the 80’s he played guitar and had a major creative role in the highly regarded Minimal Compact.  In 1988, after Minimal Compact’s demise, he came back to Israel and, recorded the albums “Lehitraot Bechalomotai” and the ground breaking album “Sipurim Mehakufsa”, which is regarded as the precursor of 90’s era Israeli rock.   In 1992 he released “Hakol Oh klum”, followed by “Simanim Shel Hulsha” (which is considered by many to be one of the best Israeli rock records) and “Ham Al Hayare’ach”, but it wasn’t until “Negiot”, which contained a catchy mix of ethnic-inspired-electro-enhanced rock songs, when he got critical media attention and became immensly popular in Israel.
