Concert, organized by the weekly journal Jungle World
The band Jewdyssee forms round German-Israeli singer Maya Saban, together they produce a musical mélange of traditional Yiddish music and club, electro and swing sounds. With their crossover of different styles, the group wants to introduce sounds that for a long time seemed almost vanished to a wide audience. Their project is not only inspired in a historical and eclectic way, but also cross-culturally: as for their musical inspiration, it geographically ranges from the Middle East to the Balkans and the clubs of Berlin. Equipped with a DJ desk, guitar, trombone, clarinet and trumpet, Jewdyssee have already travelled many European countries, as well as Israel and the US West and East Coast, with the aim to present and celebrate musical traditions in a new fashion.
