Hadag Nahashfeatures a full electric band, along with turntables and samples backed by their notoriously bold frontman.

Feverishly devoted to equality and civil rights, the group is the soundtrack for the Israeli struggle against corruption and racism. Rolling Stone Magazine says, “ [At their show], audience members climbed onto each other’s shoulders, danced in the aisles, and shouted along with the band’s call-and-response.”
