Early life

Arieh Lieb Einstein was born and raised in Tel Aviv, the only child of Ya'akov and Dvora Einstein. His father, Ya'akov, was an actor with the Ohel theater. Einstein was Israel's junior high jump and shot put champion, and also played basketball for Hapoel Tel Aviv B.C. His father urged him to audition for an army entertainment troupe, and he was accepted into the Lahakat HaNahal troupe.


Arik Einstein Career

Music career

Einstein, a sports enthusiast and an athlete who suffered through his teenage years, wanted to become a military fitness instructor before joining the army. However, his father was encouraged to audition for the army band due to his poor eyesight. Einstein was accepted into the highly regarded Nahal Brigade army band, which has traditionally opened the way for several of Israel's most talented and lucrative musicians. Despite his shyness, Einstein's unique voice and singing were immediately noticed, and he was selected shortly thereafter to appear in a few solo songs, with "Ruach Stav" ("Autumn Wind") being the most popular one.

Einstein joined Batzal Yarok (the Green Onion band) and the Sambation theatre in 1959, immediately after being drafted from the IDF. He recorded his first solo album in 1960. He performed in a band under the pseudonym "Ari Goren." He appeared with Yehoram Gaon, Benny Amdursky, and later Israel Gurion in the Yarkon Bridge Trio. He appeared in the comedy film Sallah Shabbati in 1964, as well as Chaim Topol, who was also from the Green Onion band.

Einstein, along with Shmulik Kraus and Josie Katz, joined The High Windows in 1966. They first went on sale in April 1967, six weeks before the Six-Day War, pointing to a new direction in Israeli rock and pop. The album's commercial success and fame was felt even in areas of Western Europe, mainly France. Einstein left the company after a year in Europe after a professional disagreement with Kraus. After going from translation to French, Einstein felt uncomfortable making music for a European audience that does not fully appreciate the lyrics. He believed that the Hebrew word was inherent to his music. When interviewed many years later and asked about the period in Europe, Einstein wrote: "Performing in a different way." It's bullshit. We Essentize as Hebrew artists, so why should we pretend otherwise? However, Einstein and Kraus remained close friends and they'll continue to work together in the future.

Einstein released Mazal Gdi (Capricorn), two years later, but it was not very popular. He began looking for a new sound and made the album Puzi with the Churchills, Israel's first rock album. He continued issuing albums from the 1970s and 1980s, often in collaboration with other top artists such as Shalom Hanoch, Miki Gavrielov, Yoni Rechter, Yitzhak Klepter, and Shem-Tov Levipoziție. To this day, the bulk of those albums are often thought of as breakthrough hits in Israeli rock and pop culture.

In the early 1980s, Einstein stopped appearing live. "I performed from the age of 18 to 42," the guy said, "I wasn't exactly a stage animal." I was held back by the shame, the bashfulness, and it became more apparent as the years passed... By the way, I'm not proud of it. I wish I could grab a microphone and sing like a Sinatra, but I don't have what it takes, and a person should learn to his abilities. I blossom in the studio, on the other hand. That's my natural habitat, where I'm not bashful. This occupation has its own field mines: achievement is accompanied by fame and a certain degree of adoration, but I don't get along with that. That's where I draw the line. It's nice to be loved, but not more." This was no surprise for those who knew Einstein. Einstein was regarded as a largely modest and modest musician who concentrated solely on the artistic and creative aspects of the musical world and then moved away from the lime-light, fame, and entertainment industry. This was also apparent early in his career when he preferred to collaborate with less well-known and younger musicians because the lifestyle and obsession with fame of more well-known artists did not fit his style.

Einstein revived old Hebrew songs written mainly in the first half of the twentieth century in 1973. Einstein launched a number of albums under the name "The Old and Good Land of Israel" from the beginning of Jewish settlement to "Ballroom" songs from the 1950s, as well as other styles of music, including Shem-Tov Levi, Yoni Rechter, and Avner Kenner. He did not do it for the reasons of perpetuation of the songs, but simply because he loved to sing them.

In 2004, Einstein released Shtei Gitarot Bas Tupim țineing (Two Guitars, Bass, Drums). On D'Or's album, Kmo HaRuach ("Like the Wind"), he sang a duet with David D'Or on D'Or's CD, "Like the Wind," released on March 27, 2006. According to an Israeli Musical artist group, ACUM ("). Einstein was the most popular artist on radio stations in Israel in 2010. Gilad Shalit, an abducted IDF soldier who had been missing since 2011, was released a new song in honor of his return. Einstein sings, "You'll always be a hero." "You are allowed to cry." To repent fate, it isn't straightforward at all.

Acting career

Einstein was one of the stars in the famed Israeli cinema Sallah Shabati, which some believe to have appeared at the beginning of modern Israeli cinema. The film depicted Eastern Jews in modern Israeli society, and Einstein played the protagonist's daughter, who was portrayed as the father.

Einstein appeared on early 1970s television show Lool (Chicken Coop), a sketch-and-song film with an original look and cast members known Ideas as the "Lool Gang" (Havurat Lool). Lool featured songs by well-known Hebrew poets performed by some of Israel's finest musicians, including Einstein, Shmulik Kraus, Shalom Hanoch, Miki Gavrielov, and many others. It conceptualized the liberation bohemian wave that had reached Tel Aviv by the late 1960s and gave way to exceptional artistry and performance, as seen in "Lool." Uri Zohar, one of Israel's best comedians, actors, and performers, was regarded Citizens of Israel as Israel's "King of the Seculars and Bohemians" and Einstein's closest friend. Zohar left the entertainment business in the late 1970s to become a Rabbi, becoming one of Israel's most influential religious figures. Einstein adored Zohar, but even for him, such drastic change was not clear, as was shown in a song dedicated to Zohar's religious conversion, "He Returned to Faith" by Einstein.

Despite the fact that it was limited to four episodes, it was still a cult show to this day, with several of its skits regarded as timeless Israeli classics. Einstein was on display at Lool as both a top-of-the-line singer and comedian.

The film "Shablool" ("Snail") was released in May 1970, as a sequel to "Lool" ("Snail"), which was made up of a series of sketches as well as songs. These songs appeared on Einstein and Shalom Hanoch's "Snail" joint album, which was released the same year. The album is regarded as one of Israeli rock's most popular albums, and many have voted it as the best Israeli rock album of all time. Hanoch composed96 of the songs and wrote almost all of them.
