This is a vibrant array of musical interpretations of Jewish identities, from ram’s horn to beatbox, from Uganda to Argentina.
In an alternative Argentinean bar, two friends play tango-infused klezmer. In rural Uganda, villagers chant Hebrew prayers in East African harmonies. At a Montreal party, an artist mixes hip-hop and jazz with cantorial singing in a multilingual tour de force. In a Berlin apartment, an American harmonizes with a Russian friend in a rendition of an anti-Zionist song from the 1920’s. Shattering stereotypes and upending expectations, the film attends to the birth of a dynamic new Jewish music.
