Gali Atari is one of the most famous Israeli singers, whose songs has been filling radio playlists for decades.
She was born in 1953 to parents who immigrated to Israel from Yemen, and grew with two sisters who later also became famous (one is an actress and one is a radio broadcaster.) Her career started to bloom when she was only 17. A song she recorded represented Israel in a big competition in Tokyo, Japan. The very same song, “Im Yesh Lecha Shemesh” (If you have a sun) became an instant hit in Israel and opened the door to her successful and long career.
In the late 70’s she became part of the singing group Halav VeDvash (Milk and Honey) and in 1979, they won first place at the Eurovision singing contest, with the song “Hallelujah.” In the past four decades, she maintained her position as one of our biggest artists. She acted in several memorable Israeli films and continued singing beautiful songs, which became a major part of the Israeli soundtrack.
Ein Li Eretz Aheret (I don't have another country) - this song is often being referred to Israel's unofficial anthem.
