A video and podcast interview with the band Shtar on their new release Boss, which further develops their sound. This interview was conducted backstage at the Yellow Submarine in Jerusalem during Shtar's CD release show. Find out why a rabbi encouraged a yeshiva student to rap and hear a unique fusion of live instrumentation, Mizrachi style singing, and a hip-hop feel appeal. The band discusses the reactions of both religious and non-religious Israelis to their music and lyrics. Special thanks to Glass Hat Media for video production.

Plus, new music from the up-and-coming band Jaffa Road, new Avraham Fried and a  classic from Shlomo Carlebach.
