The Backyard (החצר האחורית)

Israeli rock band The Backyard (החצר האחורית) show us around one of the most impressive – but most endangered – landscapes in Israel.

One of the most popular sites in Israel for tourists, the Dead Sea has been suffering in the recent years from an ecological disaster that leads to a decrease in the water level.

Yankale Rotblit, one of the greatest Israeli writers, wrote about it a piercing text and recorded this beautiful protest song with his band friends: Gedi Ronen, Itamar Ziegler and Tomer Yosef (Balkan beatbox).

The videoclip for “Who Killed the Dead Sea?” (מי הרג את ים המוות) has been taken with a drone, hoping that someone would save the situation.
