Just came back from a really cool live show of new material with Coolooloosh. The ‘Yaarot menashe’ (Menashe forests) festival is one of the two main indie music festivals takingplace in Israel every year (the second one is Indie Negev).
This year my band Coolooloosh was part of a very groovy night of shows including the ever famous Hadag Nahash, Ramirez brothers and Yossi Fine and the remix. It has been a while since we played live in Israel and this time we prepared a brand new set of songs which are much more hard hitting rock-hip hop in your face kind of vibe.

The special thing about the show was the collaboration between Coolooloosh and Yossi Fine. Fine is an incredible bass player and producer who has influenced us heavily as a band. His African style of music is infectious and his new group ‘Yossi fine and the remix’ is sounding great on stage.

We collaborated with them on a track called Ebae and Soul (Listen) which was originally a remix made by Ori Winokur, combining Cooloolooshs’ ‘mind and soul‘ and the ex-centric song ‘Ebae‘. The crowd at the festival was very supportive, dancing all the way and we felt it was a great come back for us as a band and celebrating our 10th anniversary this year, it was a good kick off.
