Yehuda Poliker

Yehuda Poliker (born December 25, 1950) is an Israeli pop rock singer-songwriter and a musician, born to Greek-Jewish immigrants in Israel. His music combines rock with Greek and other Mediterranean musical styles. He plays several instruments such as guitar, bouzouki, and bağlama and was a member of the popular 1980s Israeli rock band Benzeen (also spelled Benzin).

Poliker's father, Zoko, was a Holocaust survivor from Salonika, Greece. His story is told in the 1988 film "Because of That War" ("Biglal Hamilhamah Hahi"), which features music by Poliker himself.
