These are presented as a litmus test for understanding social and political developments in Israel. Created for the soldiers at the front, with an attempt to appeal to the citizens on the home-front, the IDF bands were from their very beginning a first-rate entertainment tool. The series tells the personal and collective story of those who were there, while identifying the ideological role of the bands.
