Playing across a Divide

Benjamin Brinner

Oxford University Press

Yair Dalal occupies an intermediate position in the constellation of musical possibilities that encompasses Alei Hazayit and Bustan Abraham. With an international reputation for performing music that is both “ethnic” and Israeli, he draws on a greater variety of musical resources than the former, but fewer than the latter. The three most important areas in which the inclusion of Yair complicates and extends our view of this field of cultural production are his social and cultural activism, his choice and presentation of musical sources, and the unusually diverse array of musicians with whom he has worked. He studied violin at the Givatayim Conservatory from the age of eight to eighteen. As a teenager he turned away from his parents' music, showing greater interest in the Beatles and other Anglo-American rock, only picking up the 'ud in his early twenties.
