Hafla! - A Rough Guide to Jaffa's 70's Sound (Compiled by Fortuna Records)

Well this compilation was commissioned by the Ha’achim restaurant in Tel Aviv: whether or not that means that these bangers are going to be accompanying diners evening meals I don’t know, but it means this LP is fully grounded in the place it documents. Ten tracks from Jaffa in the 1970’s, absolutely bristling with life-force a...view item »

Shimshon Miel
