Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood, and the Rajasthan Express – Junun (Nonesuch)

JununAfter more than a decade of study in Rajasthan, Israeli-American songwriter Shye Ben Tzur teamed up with The Rajasthan Express, a 15+ member band with a 6 piece brass section & strong Qawwali/Bhangra sound, plus multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead), who subtly embellishes the tracks, to create this fresh, culturally respectful, & mesmerizing new fusion. Lyrics in Urdu, Hindi and Hebrew. The recording was also documented in a new film by Paul Thomas Anderson, which recently premiered at the New York Film Festival. Spectacular music!
