Asher Parkes lives and breathes music. It is this passion that led him to a career as a music producer, and that more recently led him to becoming the director of Sofar Sounds Jerusalem.Parkes made aliya about a year ago and was trying to find ways to become more involved in the Israeli music scene. Around the same time, a friend was attending business school in London and heard a lecture from Rafe Offer, the founder of Sofar Sounds, which began in London in and has since spread to 392 cities around the world.
