Berlin première –  their unusual and bold style have caused a sensation and now the first CD by the cutting-edge band from Riga Forshpil is available. Led by keyboardist Ilya Shneyveys and singer Sasha Lurje with her sensational deep timbre, Forshpil presents a fusion of Yiddish songs, Hasidic chants, and klezmer tunes, mixed up by jazz, reggae, and funk. This is how it would have sounded if Pink Floyd and The Doors had ever jammed together at a Jewish wedding!
