Season 2 episode 22 ‘Rebel Angel’ – this week we play Michael Jackson and we talk Michael Jackson. We talk about the contrast between the artist on and behind the stage. Between the musical legacy we must remember and the dark side of the popstar psyche. The myth of fame and all that glitter & gold. Ending on happy notes…
Today we honour the memory of the Jewish people as the world commemorated World War II with International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Between the beautiful tunes we listen to, we navigate between despair, hope, our favorite bands and lullabies… Until we find our place…
The Lonely Child
Dance me to the end of love
Yesh bi od koach (live)
Demain c’est toi
Elizabeth & the Catapult
All your favorite bands
Desperados under the eaves
Milk Carton Kids
Hope of a lifetime
Erev mul hagilad
Lullaby (Goodnight, My angel)
Circle of life
It’s the circle of life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love
Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the circle The circle of life

Sometimes I’m ahead of my time when I post about people, bands, places or things and sometimes I’m behind. Remember, I have a good reason: I had a baby 🙂 One of those spots I forgot to share with you out there is Yafo Creative.
“Yafo Creative is a guest house* and creative content center** in the heart of Jaffa — A multi-disciplinary production hub where projects are ideated and developed by our community of Israeli and international artists.”
*The house was established in 2014, and gained a fast reputation for its exclusive Friday dinners featuring some of the most
exciting local artists, who organically started performing after meals. Artists of all backgrounds – music, dance or visual art, started an interdisciplinary dialogue. The newly renovated space is nestled in a secret spot in Jaffa and offers four elegant and design rooms featuring 50-ft-high ceilings suitable for one or two guests, each with a Queen-sized handmade eucalyptus bed, local vintage furniture and changing art exhibitions. Yafo Creative offers travelers insider guidance and a unique opportunity to connect and collaborate with locals in an authentic, dynamic and inspirational spot in Israel. Room price is 90$ and more info can be found on Airbnb.
**The Yafo Creative community consists of international and local artists, tastemakers and producers, who together, bring culture to a wider audience around the world, as well as international culture to Israel through various channels, including pop-up events, monthly ‘creative dinners’, theatrical productions, exhibitions, films, music and photography. Yafo Creative develops select artists within the community through strategic channels and services — including branding, multimedia production and filmmaking — to further promote local art and spark new conversation and collaboration, crossing boundaries of genre and medium.
I recently went there to hear my friend and personal genius Rotem Bar Or (from the band The Angelcy) perform solo during an “intimate session” and luckily he played my new favorite song, untitled and unreleased; here’s a glimpse for your ears only:
