About the music:

How can we describe the music of Teapacks?

It sounds like new street guerilla folk with an overdose of Jewish chutzpa, Israeli power punk chopped with ethnic elements, rap rhymes & pop choruses, North African beat & East European melodies schizophrenically combined with a dirty disco flavor.

Teapacks is guaranteed to move your butt, tickle your feet, mess with your mind, and touch your heart!

About Teapacks:

Teapacks was formed in 1988, when Gal Peremen and Kobi Oz met at a Kibbutz in southern Israel . The two began playing Kobi's original songs, and were later joined by other musicians from local Kibbutzim and the city of Sderot .

Theband has released seven albums, a movie soundtrack, one EP and a greatest hits collection. Four albums went Gold, and two went Platinum. Over the years, their singles have received regular radio play, often climbing to the top of the Israeli charts. Teapacks has been named “Band of the Year” numerous times by various Israeli media outlets. Their thousands of live performances have filled concert halls, festivals, and a host of high-profile events in Israel and around the world.

Teapacks is seen to be the key mover behind the legitimization and success of Middle Eastern music in Israel . Ever since Teapacks' explosion on the scene in the early 90s, Middle Eastern styles began to be considered worthy of heavy rotation on Israeli radio.

Teapacks infamously participated in the last Eurovision Song Contest (kind of an international American Idol for songs) that took place in Helsinki , Finland on May 2007. This unusual experience and the controversial responses to their song, "Push the Button",  got them thinking about creating a new album with international songs and performances abroad. Push the button for one of the many YouTube screenings and talkbacks that drew over a million into the debate!

Biography of the composer and author- Kobi Oz:

The lyrics of most Teapacks songs are written & composed by Kobi Oz , the band's lead singer.

He was born in 1969 in the town of Sderot , located in the south of Israel . Sderot, where many leading musicians grew up, is considered one of the most important cities in the Israeli music scene. Oz began creating and playing music at the age of 15. He started out playing keyboards for the band Sfatayim , which performed traditional Moroccan music and eventually became, among other things, a leading music producer who “discovered” many new artists like Hadag Nachash . Additionally, Oz collaborated with Sarit Hadad as lyricist & melodist on one of her albums. This album was a huge breakthrough on Israeli radio, and included Hadad's most well-known and talked about hits.

Besides his music career, an author who has published two best selling books called “ Petty Hoodlum ” (2002) and “ Moshe Chuato and the Raven ” (1996) and a social activist who recently organized a big demonstration to raise public awareness of the tragedy of his home town, which is constantly under missile attack from Gaza . About 40 , 000 people came to Rabin  Square to show solidarity with the traumatized children of Sderot.

Kobi and his work is featured in the upcoming Fall edition of Zeek magazine.



Emil Zrihan Is Performing In Boston, Sept. 8th!

Emil Zrihan, cantor of the synagogue in Ashkelon (Israel), kept the Judeo-Andalusian and folk traditions of his motherland, Morocco, alive in his heart. The impressive vocal range and power of Zrihan's counter tenor express both the emotional intensity of North African songs and the vivacity of Andalusian music. His fascinating 'mawals' (improvisations) are subtly enhanced by the oud, violin, accordion and darbouka. The upbeat rhythmic tempo with its Mediterranean languor of the Orient, a mix which evokes the family gatherings, the songs and the dances of the Sephardic culture.
