Smoky, Underground, Mediterranean
IN BLACK & WHITE. ELAD NAVON
3 months ago I was asked to shoot one of the most talked about parties in Tel -Aviv , A new Mediterranean disco party , created by DG Ruben Lhav and the night life persona kies tiby.
Once a week in a dark, smoky underground spot the hosts their DG colleges who deejay new electronic middle east sounds .
All mixes with video art, belly dancing and ethnic food to the starving crowd. Once a week a mix of Arabs and Jews & Urbanic hipsters mix together and create one crazy 21 century oriental night with the sounds of love and hope.
At some point while political differences & chaos was running in the streets of Israel it seemed as t the party was about to shoot down. Yet, the starving crowd for normality kept on dancing and twisting adding smiling images to my photo bank.
