During a time when some Jews refrain from listening to live music – Jewish rap super star, Y-Love and beatbox superstar Yuri Lane (who has over 13 millions hits on youtube) create all their music non-instrumentally. One of the lead singles on the record is “Watch” (The Passover Song), ‘Passover is a time of year where there are a lot of elements to the holiday – the Ten Plagues, the 4 Cups, the 4 Sons, the 4 Questions – I wanted to give these elements a musical voice, using hip-hop. Â “Watch” is as much an educational tool about Pesach as it is a hip-hop track.” says Y-Love.
Darshan have dug up some traditional sources and remixed them in a modern retelling of the story found at the end of the Passover Haggadah. Together they create something all together new, and at the same time ancient. Deep and probing rhymes blend with evocative and uplifting melodies in â€œan uncompromising blend of urban forms and neo-Hasidic spirituality.â€ – The Forward.
â€œI new this one kid, from back in the dayâ€¦.â€ raps Eprhyme in Darshan’s version of “Chad Gadya”
