We couldn’t miss this one for the world: last night about 20 professional cyclists put the pedal to the metal and powered the Balkan Beat Box free concert at Rabin Square. Thousands of people (and dogs) of all ages took part in seeing the show.
The show to celebrate Earth Day couldn’t run on people power alone, so to keep the wattage flowing, the concert producers tapped into biodiesel made from used falafel oil.
Green Prophet and our entourage danced our way through the crowd, rushing to the center stage of the power production. The cyclists themselves.
See this amateur video of how pedal power of the Earth Day concert in Israel looks.
Israel celebrated the annual event a day after most others in the world, out of respect for Holocaust survivors who are memorialized the day before Earth Day. (It’s not considered respectful to party and celebrated as we mourn).
