Kochi: A Musical Journey Celebrating The History Of The Jews In India


This episode features an interview with Ruth Weber, Director of the San Diego Jewish Men’s Choir. Their latest album, Kochi,  was released today, and blends Jewish and Indian music. This is a new way of thinking about Jewish music, but is reflective of the rich history of Jewish culture in India, particularly the city of Cochin. Featuring instrumental arrangements by Ricky Kej and Vanil Veigas of India, these songs are transformed by the blending of traditional Indian instruments with the Yiddish, Hebrew, and Ladino texts. We hear the track Sha Shtil from the album. A portion of the album proceeds will be donated to the Gabriel Project Mumbai, providing relief to children living in the slums of Mumbai.

Run time: 23:47
