This group has the clear mission of reviving the Jewish Balkan music tradition, a goal that is definitely approached with tremendous seriousness. In spite of that, their totally modern improvisation includes not only a punk-rockabilly double bass and the passionate contributions of Filip Krumes on violin, but also the unambiguous and unique sound of qanun (a kind of Jewish sitar), played by the renowned musician from Israel, Elad Gabbay.
