Description: 

An examination of musica mizrakhit and Israeli rock to show how the exclusion of the one produces motivation and demands for inclusion in the national culture, while the cosmopolitan nature of the other exposes it to pressures to become 'national'. This article is part of the research project 'Popular Music and the Construction of Israeli Culture', conducted in collaboration with Edwin Seroussi and supported by The Israel Science Foundation, founded by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanitites.
