Hadag Nahash is Israel’s leading Hip Hop band and has been topping the
Israeli music charts since September 2000. Their recent release, “BeEzrat
HaJam” (With the Help of the Jam) has produced three # 1 hits and has
achieved Platinum status in Israel. The band plays a unique style of music
that blends Hip Hop, Funk, Jazz, Electro and Rock with a touch of Middle
Eastern flavor. This great musical fusion has garnered Hadag Nahash a large
fan-base in Israel and abroad.
Hadag Nahash was formed in Jerusalem in 1996. After touring Israel for more
then four years and generating a large following, they released their first
album, Hamechona Shell HaGroove.
(The Groove Machine) in September 2000. The album was very successful and
proved that excellent music can go along with important ideas. In 2003 the
band released their second album, Lazuz (To Move) produced by
internationally acclaimed musician Yossi Fine. The album had four # 1 hits
and achieved gold status.
In 2004 Hadag Nahash released their third album, Homer Mekomi? (Local
Stuff). This album, also produced by Yossi Fine, went Platinum within a few
weeks and established Hadag Nahash as one of Israel’s leading bands. At the
end of 2004, Hadag Nahash won the “Band of the Year Album of the Year” and
“Song of the Year” awards by virtually every newspaper, Internet site, radio
and TV station in Israel.
On stage, Hadag Nahash engulfs its audience in upbeat rhythm, swinging
sounds, and funky lyrics, leaving them entranced and swaying along with the
groove. As the refrain from their famous song Lazuz goes, Hadag Nahash
invites you to move, move, move…
