Music at Hutzot haYotzer, 2011

Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 2, 2011

Mosh Ben Ari

I just realised that I haven’t mentioned the musical performances at Hutzot haYotzer. There are usually two to four venues (including the main stage) with concerts. These performances are included in the cost of admission. If you haven’t gone to Hutzot haYotzer in the past because of the cost, you could consider 55 NIS/adult (about $15) a reasonable amount for live performances. The main act usually starts at 9 p.m. on the stage farthest from the entrance. The night we went, Mosh Ben Ari was performing. (Coincidentally, last year we also happened to be at the festival on the night he was performing but I didn’t have a video camera with me.) Here’s a short clip from his performance. I chose it mainly because it gives you a good idea of the surroundings of the Sultan’s Pool area. The Old City is on the right and Mamilla is on the left.

Odelia and the Soulmates performed on the small stage, between the food court and the Israeli artists’ pavilion. I chose the video of one of the bridge sections because most of the time the main spotlight was so bright that you couldn’t see any details of her face.

Demonstration of the rare art of flute-synching (you can see this in the video, when he changes flutes).

Another clip of Mosh Ben Ari. The sound quality isn’t great but it gives a better idea of how his band sounds.

      Not total darkness — there was some light. But it was handheld. Tripod is too bulky for these crowded fairs and too heavy for an evening out!
