Podcast of a public talk by Azzan Yadin-Israel, Rutgers University
Professor Yadin-Israel will discuss the vigorous and self-aware use of the Hebrew literary canon, including bibilical and rabbinic references, in the lyrics of Hadag Nahash - a band known for its intense invovlement in Israeli and Hebrew culture. The words and phrasing in their songs combine literary and religoiusly-infused language with the modern, secular language of the Israeli street to powerful effect.
