Israel sits at the crossroads of different cultures, and the variety of music reflects that, especially in Tel Aviv. One place that helps ensure a high quality of Israeli musicians is the Rimon School of Jazz and Contemporary Music.
Rimon is a top school with links to Berklee College in Boston.
Liron Deutsch, from Sydney, is a 2nd year student at Rimon, who also performs with the singer Ido Lederman and the rest of his band.
More of their songs can be heard at www.myspace.com/idolederman. The group is launching their first CD on May 3rd, at a big concert at the highly rated “Zapa” music hall in Tel Aviv.
See here for who else is playing at the Zapa as well as linking to the variety of musical happenings in Tel Aviv – especially with Yom Ha’atzmaut coming up.
