*** JEWISH MONKEYS ***
+ Wacky burlesque punky Rock band - Yiddish music meets the Marx Brothers +

 

Wherever the eight musicians from Tel Aviv appear, things get wild, cheeky and surprising. This is even more astonishing if you consider that they started out as members of Frankfurt Synagogue's boys' choir in the 1970s. This is where the singers, Dr Boiko and Jossi Reich first met and became lifelong friends. Having both since immigrated to Israel, three decades later, they formed their marvellously irreverent trio Jewish Monkeys, together with Gael Zaidner. The trombone, accordion, electric guitar, bass and percussion accompany them. The commotion they create with their politically incorrect texts and refined sense of nonsense is reminiscent of the Marx Brothers. The Jewish Monkeys constantly launch satirical attacks with their English-language Balkan-Klezmerstyle rock and uninhibited lyrics. Their sound is engaging, not shying away from issues such as the lust for oil, climate change, child abuse, violent fathers and the Middle East conflict. Good portions of their songs are in Yiddish – but beware: Yiddish is getting a serious facelift too!

 

Spirited, disrespectful, Jewish humor at its finest. A wild, cult-worthy mix of Klezmer, Balkan and Rock. - 3Sat-Kulturzeit, 3.09.2014 (TV channel for Austria/Switzerland/Germany)

***GYPSY HILL***
+ Old Yemeni chewing Khat with Romanian horn players at a South London rave +

Gypsy Hil play an intoxicating mix of Balkan brass, Mediterranean surf rock, ska & swing. Featuring guitars, horns, tuba, a scratch DJ and a mix of live and electronic beats, Gypsy Hill effortlessly mix the traditional with a uniquely modern sound.

Producers DJ Kobayashi and Herbert Newbert have taken the project from studio to stage, gradually growing the band and honing their high-energy live hows. Their burgeoning CV includes remixes for the likes of Balkan Beat Box and Al Jawala and a special feature on Ninja Tune's acclaimed 'Ninja Jamm' app. On the latter appearing alongside electronic music royalty such as Coldcut, Mr Scruff, Bonobo and many more of the Ninja Tunes roster.
