A visit at the home where Dubi Seltzer (a recipient of the Israel Prize for Israeli Music) wrote some of his best-known hits: songs for the musicals Kazablan and Utz Li Gutz Li, songs for the army’s entertainment troupes, soundtracks for films, some of the popular songs performed by Yehoram Gaon (Rosa and songs about Jerusalem), and others.
The house is built on a cliff adjacent to the beach, characterized by steep topography. It extends across three floors of vaulted stone spaces whose design was inspired by homes on the Greek island of Santorini, with interior walls covered with coarse white plaster and wooden doors and windows painted blue. The house also has a balcony that overlooks the Mediterranean, which is designed in the same style.
There are plans in place to open a cultural and music center in the house – called “From the Nahal Entertainment Troupe to Kazablan” – which will be under the artistic direction of Noam Semel and the curatorship of Zachi Becker. The house is currently used by Alex Landsberg as his photography studio.
Tours of the house will be in groups of 15.
