About the Event: Musical History of Tel Aviv, 1948-1988
Our special event on the Musical History of Tel Aviv from 1948-1988 features Sagol 59, who will take us on a 40 year trip through Tel Aviv's rich musical history. From Israel's Declaration of Independence and the music played in cafes on the promenade, to the birth of Israeli Rock, oriental "Cassette Music" and the city's New Wave scene of the decadent 80's.
The lecture is in English, and will be broadcast live on Teder.fm, and be recorded and added to the Teder and HaChug’s archives. After the lecture Yashiv Cohen will step into the Teder’s van-come-studio for a surprising strictly-Israeli DJ set. The night will of course also be filled with beer, booze, food, and ideally run into the wee hours.
Tel Aviv School of Music (or HaChug letoldot hamoozika, AKA HaChug) is a Tel-Avivian informal class, that opened in 2003 in order to establish a place for communal gatherings basking in the light of music. Over the years it has hosted dozens of top notch music experts, writers, critics, musicians and lecturers, on all kinds of musical topics. Founder of the school is Yashiv Cohen, lead singer of indie band Men of North Country, DJ and founder of TASC – Tel Aviv Soul Club.

Teder Pop-Up Radio Bar opened its fourth season in the middle of June. This year its location is the historical Beit Romano – built in 1947, it is one of Tel Aviv’s first shopping centers, which connects the city’s center with the south of Tel Aviv and Jaffa. Like every summer, the Teder is open for a limited period, in which it functions as the city’s seasonal hot-spot, while bringing together music, food and alcohol. This year, in addition to the meticulous musical content, the Teder is becoming a platform for more artists and mediums, while incorporating video-art, design, dance and many more surprises that are sure to spice up the local night-life. Teder is open and transmitted live online every night from 9PM. You can listen online, but its best to just drop by.
