Question by yerofidi: Does anyone know of Israeli music that sounds kinda arabic?
I like that traditional sounds of Middle Eastern music, such as hindi and arabic music, and I’m also Israeli, but I don’t really like much Israeli music, since it doesn’t seem to have a very cultural sound to it. So if you can point me in the direction of an Israeli band with a cultural sound to it, than I would really appritiate it, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, then I understand.

Yes, this is very close:
You are looking for Sephardic Music. It originated with the Jews in medieval Spain. Spain was conquered by the Moors who were middle eastern. As often happens with situations like that, there is a culture exchange and cross-cultural influences.
The YouTube video is modern with electric instruments. You can find stuff that sounds much more ancient.
