Synergia (Hebrew: סינרגיה) is an Israeli rock band. The band was first formed by two childhood friends Ron Hofman (keyboard) and Roy Gefen (guitar). The two used to perform as a cover-versions band in Tel Aviv called `HaTzayadim` (The Hunters). Later on, the two joined forces with bass player Iron Shabtai, guitar player Ariel `Bibs` Branson and drummer Ori Raz (later on to be replaced by Benua Nechaisi, Eitan Raz and Tomer maizner, respectively).Read More
The band first radio hit in Israel was a cover version for another Israeli musician, Shlomo Artzi, though their first album, ``Tzo'akim Al Ahava`` (Screaming at Love) that year received little success. Yet, their second album, ``Margish Acher`` (Feeling Different), gained the band the status of the no.1 rock band in Israel, practically over-night. From this 2006 album the band produced many instant radio hits, most notably ``Margish Acher`` and ``Ashem`` (Guilty). This album reached the gold status in Israel.
On 2006 and 2007 the band won several awards, amongst them `Band of the Year` two years in a row from the Israeli music channel Music 24 and both major popular music radio station: Reshet Gimel (Kol Yisrael) and Galgalatz. The title song of their second album was also named as `Song of the Year` by Galgalatz.
