Mashina is an Israeli pop rock band which is considered by many to be Israel's most important and influential rock band to date. The band was formed in 1984 by singer Yuval Banai, a member of the prestigious Banai family, Israel's widely celebrated family of entertainers. Mashina’s unique sound has been influenced by many well-known Western artists although their subsequent albums combined reggae, punk rock and Middle Eastern elements, creating a sound that is very unique and very Israeli.  Their first, self-titled album, Mashina, released in 1986, was an instant, overnight success, turning platinumin under 6 months. During that same year, Mashina wrapped up the final show on their national tour in front of 50,000 people in the Yarkon Park in Tel-Aviv.  In 1989 the band released the album “Ladies and Gentlemen; Mashina”. The album was a colossal success, turning gold in less than 3 months and Mashina was name Band of the Year and their song “Rikud Hamechona” (“The Dance of The Machine”) was named Song of the Year.
