Kalka spoke to Arutz Sheva's Israel Beat Jewish Music Podcast about the song and video. To download the podcast click here.
"I wouldn't even call him a rapper," Kalfa said. "I consider him more of a poet. He's a performer and singer, but the thing I'm most impressed with is his ability to create poetry. It's hard to explain in an interview, but it was great being in the studio watching him compose lyrics to the song," Kalfa stated.
Kalfa is experiencing his own success. He moved to Israel from Canada only within the past year or two but has already become popular in the local music scene. His duet with Shlomo Katz entitled "Zion" achieved over 1 million views since June 2012. His new video with Shyne is poised to become just as popular.
Regarding the new song he stated, "I was sitting outside with my wife and she said, 'We're here in Israel now and there's all this talk about war and Iran. It's one thing for the two of us to move here but we have kids. Is it responsible for us to put them in the middle of a conflict?' I happened to have my guitar in my hands and just started strumming to the words 'Kol ha'olam kulo gesher tzar me'od, v'ha'ikar lo lefahed klal.'"
