For this special concert, multi-instrumentalist Erran Barron Cohen has gathered together a great band to perform a live version of his seminal album, especially for JW3.
In 2008, Erran Baron Cohen, best known as an award-winning Oscar-shortlisted film composer, recorded Songs in the Key of Hanukkah - the funkiest, coolest Jewish Holiday album to great critical acclaim.
The original album features guest appearances from Jules Brookes, Israeli megastar Idan Raichel, World music diva Yasmin Levy, New York based rapper Y-Love, Dana Kerstein and others.
The concept was to meld remixed versions of Chanukah songs with original tracks to create a new concept in Jewish holiday music, something that everybody would enjoy listening to; kids, adults and everything in between. Recorded in London, Berlin and Tel Aviv, the songs combine klezmer, reggae, electronica, hip hop, tango, pop and other genres, all fluently woven into something uniquely Baron Cohen’s.
So join us on the first night of Chanukah for this raucous, joyous celebration.
