Wonderful leftfield funky tunes that are stylistically and regionally all over the map – a genre defying blend of klezmer, hip hop, middle eastern strings, reggae and more – done with a twist that balances musical and cultural tradition with all purpose grooves that have no boundaries! The musicians on this set – who hail from Israel, to the US, Great Britain, Canada, France, Holland and beyond – mix styles frenetically, some of them doing so in a good-natured tongue in cheek way, others in complete earnest. Like the artists, Trikont sees no boundaries in their efforts to cross-pollinate musical styles and cultural visions – in this is another winning compilation in their ever adventurous catalog! If you thought loosely funky Hebrew music begins and ends with Matisyahu – you're in for a nice surprise! Titles include "Immigrant Song" by Yuriy Gurzhy Vs Amsterdam Klezmer Band, "Hassidish" by Solomon & So-Called, "Shabak Music" by MookE, "Adir Alam" by Balkan Beat Box
, "Shtiklakh" by King Django's Roots And Culture, "The Souvlak" by Boom Pam, "Lucky Goddamn Jew" by Geoff Berner, "2nd Train Meditation" by Lemez Lova and more.
