Bar’s meeting point

Bar made aliya with his family from Rabat, Morocco, at age six. The Bars joined thousands of other olim who flooded here from around the world in the wake of the establishment of the state.

Shlomo Bar is a hard man to pin down. At the age of 71, with close to 40 years of earnest musical derring-do behind him, the iconic percussionist- vocalist shows no signs of slowing down.

The founder member of the Habreira Hativit crossgenre group has been blazing his own, highly individual trail across widely ranging musical terrain since the mid-1970s, regardless of industry trends or sociopolitical shifts. Bar is the irrepressible and instantly recognizable frontman of the group that coined the East-West musical idiom here.
