Koby Aflalo's music must be listened to with eyes closed. Only then, you can feel his beautiful voice surrounding you, touching your heart and clenching your stomach. The perfect combination of beautiful voice, deep words and touching lyrics, makes him one of the most successful Israeli singers nowadays, which songs taking over our radio stations.

Aflalo started to write not long after finishing his service in the IDF. In 2006, he released his first single, Ba Min Hashtika (Coming from the silence.) It wasn't an instant hit, but intrigued the ears of the audience and the critics. After releasing his second single, Yam Harachaming (Sea of mercy,) there was no doubt that this newcomer will become a big star. In 2009, he released his second album, BaYom Hachi Bahir (On the brightest day,) and in 2012, his third album, Zhorat Kanaf (The one who has a white and pure wing) was released. All three albums contained Number One hits.
