Melbourne International Jazz Festival 2019 YID!
Tuesday, 4 June

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 Ďa Funkadelic style, John Zorn style, Talking Heads style Yiddish big bandí.

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

Featuring Josh Abrahams, Alex Burkoy, Lachlan Davidson, Husky Gawenda, Ben Gillespie, Steven Grant, Tony Hicks, Tomi Kalinski, Spike Levy, Reuben Lewis, Eamon McNeils, Jordan Murray, Gideon Preiss, Niko Schauble, Adam Starr, Simon Starr, Ariel Valent, Julien Wilson, Alma Zygier, Hettie Zygier and Willy Zygier
