Vaadat Charigim

Vaadat Charigim is a young Israeli rock trio.

Their recently released 2nd album Sinking As a Stone explores their sense of boredom living in a war-weary country. (The album’s title in Hebrew translates to The Boredom Sinks In.)

Their music certainly is not boring as heard here in the song “Ein Li Makom”.
