Israel's Army Entertainment Troupes
3 DVDs full of the music and the stories of Israel's Army entertainers over the years, that is the music and history of Israel. These are the artists who became Israel's stars and the songs that became Israel's hits. Disks 2 and 3 contain the songs, and Disk 1 contains the stories behind the songs.
These are the original recordings, so full of nostalgia for any Israeli, almost all of whom have served in some capacity in the armed . On the 2 music disks and the documentary you will see stars such as Topol (Fiddler on the Roof, Sallah, Irvinka), Shaike Ophir (The Policeman, The Fox), Yehoram Gaon (Operation Thunderbolt, Kazablan), Tuvia Tzafir (Charlie and a Half, Billiards Festival), Rivka Michaeli (Big Dig), Tiki Dayan (Sima the Witch, Dead End), Natan Dettner (The Mischief Brothers), Gidi Gov (The Troupe), Nitza Sha'ul (The Megilleh, The Fox), The Gashash Trio (The Hit, Hill Halfon) and many more. Israel's greatest composers such as Naomi Shemer and Ehud Manor, who have recently passed away, and almost every top artist in Israel either wrote these songs or performed them.
The U.S. had its Laugh-In, its Saturday Night Live, its Bob Hope and its USO, and Israel had its Army Entertainment Troupes. Israeli entertainment simply wouldn't exist without them.
