Grandmaster Flash, the original, 1970s-era hip hop artist who brought the sounds from the South Bronx, will play Barby Tel Aviv on September 5.
This will be his third visit in Israel, after performances in 2009 and 2011.
The show, according to the Grandmaster Flash website, is a celebration of hip hop’s most formative decade in the 1970s, with his use of archival master recordings, images and videos from the vaults of major record labels.
The 60-year-old DJ, whose real name is Joseph Saddler, is considered a pioneer of hip hop DJing, of cutting, scratching and mixing sounds and music. He and his act, the Furious Five, were the first hip hop act to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.
Tickets to Grandmaster Flash are on sale for NIS 195 at etickets and will be NIS 220 at the ticket office on the night of the performance.
