The multi-national band that sometimes has as many as 15 musicians on a live format continues its quest to erase musical borders. Their second effort brings together sounds that go far beyond the more predictable realm of Klezmer and Gypsy, bringing in influences from other Mediterranean sources to create a mixture of hip-hop, brass band and other Western and Asian ingredients with the goal of creating what saxophonist-founder Ori Kaplan called “new Mediterranean music.” One of the new disc’s tunes that immediately grabs your attention is ‘Pachima’, in which guest vocalist Gilber Gilmore delivers a high-energy vocal backed by the band’s tight ensemble of brass and electronic sounds. On ‘Mexico City’, possibly the disc’s most rock-inspired moment, Tomer Yosef makes a veiled criticism of the current immigration controversy while guitarist Uri Kinrot inserts some clever slide guitar riffs. This is not a CD for purists — the music is so all over the place that it can’t really be fit into a single genre. Fans of experimental pop, however, will appreciate what the band is willing to offer.
