Boom Pam

Label: Essay Recordings

Magic surf guitars from Tel Aviv kicked by tuba & drums on an ecstatic Mediterranean spicy Balkan trip!
Forget the daily headlines and immerse yourself in Tel Aviv’s vibrant music scene. If there’s a sound you can’t find here in this offbeat Mediterranean metropolis, it probably doesn’t exist. The music brewed up by the BOOM PAM four is the acoustic equivalent of a high-energy drink. They already have a cult following in the Middle East, and now they have wowed European audiences as well in their gigs with Shantel at his Bucovina Club in Berlin, Frankfurt and Zurich. This CD, released worldwide exclusively on the Essay label, marks their recording debut.

Label: Essay Recordings

A great and joyous professional phenomenon has been building here for a long time and is now at its peak after a short break and an industrial silence that only warmed up the volcano and increased a sense of yearning. Boompamania is back with a second album made entirely of cover versions of the beloved tunes they’ve been playing in their shows throughout the years, and which are now officially being released for the first time. Boom Pam dig deep into their authentic artistic roots and pay tribute to their musical influences. Whether it’s their great version of “Shayeret HaRochvim” with Maor Cohen, originally a song by Dudaim, the Israeli folk pioneers, which they turned into a country/surf version where the savage prodigy of Israeli rock fits like a glove onto Boom Pam’s quick and evasive hand. Or, for instance, “Marilyn Jones”, a song from an Israeli Hassidic comedy, with the charismatic singer Dror Ahava Romem, where theatrical motives come to the fore, sticking tight to the groove of Tomer Yosef’s (Balkan Beat Box alumni) song “Ani Rotze Lazuz” (I want to move).
