Mediterranean Israeli Music and the Politics of the Aesthetic

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Arts/Article reviewpeer-review


In Mediterranean Israeli Music and the Politics of the Aesthetic, Amy Horowitz explores the popular Israeli pan-ethnic style musiqa mizrahit, from its emergence among Middle Eastern and North African Jewish immigrant communities in the 1970s to its broad acceptance in Israeli society by the mid-1990s. While several articles and book chapters on this repertory have appeared over the last two decades, this is the first English-language monograph exploring the genre; the extended format of the discussion allows Horowitz space to unpick the complexity of the social relations in which this scene is embedded.
