Josh Dolgin conducts a mini hip hop symphony filled with old Jewish samples centered around the theme of the Passover Seder, shmears it with a little love, and creates what some have hailed "one of the greatest works of Jewish music in years." I love this album. It is, as one reviewer put it, "a sound collage" and not a traditional album of songs. It's a mix of beats, melodies, chants, spoken word, and prayer.
THE SOCALLED SEDER: A HIP HOP HAGGADAH features cameos by Wu Tang Clan's Killah Priest, Matisyahu, Mr. Bungle's Trevor Dunn, Montreal's queen of country Katie Moore, David Krakauer, Susan and Elaine Hoffman Watts, and more.
