What happens when a group of 20+ musicians take centuries-old Yiddish songs, infuses them with a little 1930s big-band sound, 1960s free jazz, a hint 1970s funk, a sprinkling of 21st century electronica, and a nod to sweet indie-folk pop?

YID!, a project founder and acclaimed jazz musician/composer Simon Starr describes as ‘a Funkadelic style, John Zorn style, Talking Heads style Yiddish big band’.

This genre-bending mesmerising ensemble giant has to be seen to be believed.
