Mashina Celebration: the show is the height of emotion Israel today


The hundreds of people who came to the concert of the great rock band plunged happily into the nostalgic days when the five dominated all the charts • We would have replaced the video art of the fish in the style of the underwater observatory, but it also did not prevent us from feeling as if we had been thrown into one of the best fairy tales • Review

Anyone who did not grow up in Israel would have hospitalized all three thousand and three hundred men and women who danced yesterday (Saturday) to the music of the "Dance of the Machine" in the exhibition grounds, and closed their eyes as if in a religious consecration ceremony.

But sleep is sleep, and booth number 1 contained mainly people born between Begin's upheaval and the year in which Gili and Galit won the pre-Eurovision;

There was no one to scoff and the audience was happy to plunge into nostalgia for the days when the band of the year was from sleep every year, in Tel Aviv there was a parking lot, and chants like "And the stormy sea the wind blows/ Many singers play in the choir/ Jubilee is late because of the child/ Many singers play in the choir" had a fine rhyme and soundtrack which opens a fascinating window into the life of a cultural hero from an authentic royal family.

It's true, here and there some thirty-year-olds also sneaked into the party (the barmaid at the buffet asked: What do you want? Shandy? I don't know, I haven't heard about it. I'll ask my managers), and Yuval Banai also emphatically claimed at the end of the show that there were children at the front of the stage.

But it's hard to deny: Meshina is a perfect show for those who want to attack their love and their youth, swallow a time capsule with status partners and feel that they are not the unique one who grows up.

machine dance,

The Mishina celebration lasted two and a quarter hours ("Mishina Celebration" in Hebrew), but even five hours would have kept the public on their feet, recognizing the next hit from the first sound of Shlomi Bracha's guitar, completing complete sentences for Yuval Banai (I'll wait for you in the fields? Madness how everyone knows the words) and wonders among himself which of the five on stage hasn't aged the most (close fight but by and large, all of them).

"Optikai Meduplam" is the first song the band ever wrote, and it is also the song that opened the show.

Then they sailed into "Ballad for a double agent", "Anna" - also from the first album released by the band in 1985.

Immediately after, several songs from the albums released in 1988 and 1989, "Fresh Snow", "On the Way to the Sea", "Rani in Paris", and how can it be without "Why do I have politics now" - Banai missed his own message and inserted, of course, politics.

Then came the attempt to take the show out of its natural field, the field of sweet memory, and lend it to the band's current field of activity.

"Civil rights above politics," Banai said, "Here's a song we released three years ago. 'Speak a voice' is the name of the song."

Then Mashina sang - and the audience was silent.

Well, the crowds thought in their hearts, we didn't know there had been anything in recent years.

We were busy with a start-up, children, getting divorced.

In front of the silence of the crowd, the chant "Make a voice" sounds almost like a plea.

But from an expert sleeper in songs that end quickly, for better or for worse, the song ended and the fall of tension rose with "Danny" and the eye of Interpol.

Another weak point that improved as the evening progressed was the lighting and video art in the background.

If you decide to place a huge screen at the back of the band - it has to justify itself.

It is true that when the song "On the Way to the Sea" (1989) was released, the music video was fish in the style of the underwater observatory in Eilat.

But for a nostalgic show where Mashina dances on line 5 on the way to the sea, it's less.

Also in terms of lighting colors - a song like "Come and Fall" is easy, purple lighting will brighten the event, what did we ask for?

Later, the screen justified itself when family videos from the dawn of the band's founding were screened, providing a glimpse of rehearsals with the spouses and children of the cultural heroes.

And also a guest appearance by the late Yossi Banai.

And I will conclude with Khodorov: the relative advantage of the musician will always stand out.

In every car, in every show.

His saxophone solo stole the show at least twice, and when he pulled out an accordion in "The King's Son in Love" he completed one of the best performances of the evening: Banai on the harmonica, Iggy on the vocals, and even the Hart cover and the lighting was suddenly precise and threw us into the legends.

The five looked like an episode of the Wizard of Oz, and it was clear that this was something big and good.

Mashina's next performance will be held on April 29 at the Caesarea Amphitheatre
