No music issue would be complete without some blast from the past. For this reason, we were very pleased to get a chance to talk to Svika Pik, a legend in his own right and an important presence in Israel’s current music scene.

Known to some as Israel’s David Bowie, Svika Pik has been a prominent pop singer and songwriter since the 1970s. Part glam rock, part hippie, and part cult icon, Svika Pik played a lead part in the Hebrew version of the musical Hair in the early 1970s. The movie is still so beloved that you can see showings of it today. During this period, he was also voted “Israeli Male Singer of the Year.”
