Shlomo Bar – A Musical Documentary

International Premiere

Shlomo Bar is one of Israel’s most important and original musical artists. Now in his late 70s, Shlomo has been at the forefront of the ethnic (world music) scene for almost half a century, as the vocalist, percussionist, and undisputed leader and driving force behind Habreira Hativit (In English they call themselves “Natural Gathering”), a band he founded in 1977. For forty years, together with his band he has created music that expresses the complex heart and soul of the Israeli experience — a stirring blend of East and West that yields compositions of exceptional beauty, while also expressing social protest and pain. In the film, which is presented in musical format, Shlomo examines his life’s trajectory through a series of encounters with key figures from the past and present, interwoven with excerpts of his songs that complement and drive the film’s storyline.
