YID!

Australia

The 22-piece YID!, featuring some of Australia’s leading musicians, has a unique recipe for success. They take old Yiddish drinking songs, throw them in the pot with ‘30s big band sounds, ‘60s free jazz and ‘70s NYC avant-garde funk, then add a sprinkling of electronica and pop, and take you on a joyous, edgy and ferociously danceable trip into pre-industrialised Eastern Europe.
