21st Century Silk Road
This is the soundtrack to that much talked-about cultural phenomenon, the New Kosher Cool! Compiled by Oi-Va-Voi’s Lemez Lovas and Yurly Gurzhy, the man behind Berlin’s Russendisko club night, this is the sound of contemporary global Jewish music and is likely to come as something of a shock to those expecting musical purity or old time sounds.
In their music you will find traditional Klezmer, you will even find passages from the Torah, but they are mixed up with punk, hip-hop, ska, surf guitar and drum n bass. In other words, this is Jewish culture doing what it does best — taking from and contributing to whichever part of the world it finds itself in.
