About the Artist

Raised on the Moshav Meor Modi’im, a musical village in the hills between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, the four young men who make up the Moshav Band – Yehuda (vocals, persussion), Dovid (vocals, guitar) Yosef (Bass) and Meir (Mandolin Guitar) have learned and played music since childhood.

The American parents of Yehuda and Dovid had come to Israel in 1972 – just in time for the Yom Kippur war. They settled on a Moshav – a similar lifestyle to a kibbutz but with more autonomy and independence for the family – where their children were born and raised. "When we were growing up," explains Dovid, "the only electrical appliance in the house was a record player. So, while American kids might be growing up watching television and playing video games, we were growing up listening to music." The music they listened to were the records their parents had brought with them – Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Neil Young – and that music, combined with the beat poets they read and embraced continues to influence their songwriting. The particular Moshav that was home to the members of the band had been founded by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, himself a musician, and the young men performed with Rabbi Carelbach as well as on their own.

Performing with Rabbi Carlebach at his concerts as well as playing their own music brought the Moshav Band popularity in both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. "As far as the music we were taught," explains Yehuda, "it was primarily music of our homeland. But the music we fell in love with was the popular American music of the past 40 years, and so our music is a blend of both cultures." Eventually, American students traveling in Israel heard them play and befriended the members of the band. Taken not only with the beauty of their music, but the band members’ charismatic stage presence, these young kids from the U.S. went back to the States and raised the money to bring the Moshav Band to America for a short college tour in 1998. By 2000, the band had moved to Los Angeles, determined to make it in the mainstream pop world the way they already have in the Judaica world.

Product Description

Imagine the jamming of Phish, mixed with the vocal strength of Pearl Jam and the spiritual lyrics of U2, seasoned with a Middle-Eastern influence and you can begin to describe the unique sound of the Moshav Band! The Israeli-born Moshav Band grew up on Moshav Meor Modi'im, a musical village located in the hills between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Their home, founded by the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, was and continues to be the birthplace of many Jewish songs enjoyed by the world over. Their powerful sound is composed of brothers Yehuda (vocals, percussion), Meir (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Yosef (bass), Solomon and David (vocals, guitar). Now based in Los Angeles, the Moshav Band continues to ignite audiences throughout the USA and the rest of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Jews! June 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This best of ... is truly great. Moshav's appeal is well known in Jewish circles... but they should be crossover sensations any time now...

This album is great, but I truly love the new album

Format:Audio CD
As for Israeli bands, this is only the second one I've ever listened to a release from. Members were apparently bought up on and heavily influenced by both traditional music and classic rock such as Santana, Van Morrison, Dylan and Neil Young. Some just might tag this as 'jam rock'. Tunes here I found somewhat to my liking were "Come Back", the uptempo "Waiting For The Calling", the singer songwriter-like "Don't Give Up", the James Taylor-ish "The Things You Can't Afford", "Stop" and "If Someone Falls In Love With Me". Line-up: Dovid - guitar & vocals, Yosef - bass, Meir - guitar & mandolin and Yehuda - percussion & vocals. Give it a shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and Spiritual June 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album and lost a CD a while ago. Recently I got a new one and I do not regret it. This is one of those CDs that you do not want to part with; spiritual, sensible and energetic music. If you know Hebrew you would love it even more...
