A founding father of Israeli Rock & Roll, Ariel, who is raised on Kibbutz Mishmarot with musical icon and long time collaborator, Shalom Hanoch, is famous for his insightful and rich-poetic use of the Hebrew language in his songs. Releasing seven full-length albums and two EPs, Ariel is voted the 34th greatest Israeli of all time by Ynet news. Tragically passing at the age of 57 from a rare parasite, Ariel, who is an outspoken left-wing political activist, is widely considered to be the Bob Dylan of Israeli musical and social movements.
