Jewish rappers visiting a synagogue is not an uncommon thing. Drake did it in HYFR and LD did it in All K. Of course Lil Dicky threw in some gang bangers munching on Matza and sippin’ Manischewitz and all kinds of serious Israeli-flag assisted twerking. And the lyrics? Mostly your standard […]

Rotem Shefy on vocals, Leat Sabbah on cello, Yaniv Teichman on the oud and Ori Dekel on percussion killed it with this awesome cover of Radiohead’s Karma Police – which they apparently put together for just shits and giggles.

Israeli artists Boom Pam and Karolina got together to do a cover of Led Zeppelin’s Black Dog. Boom Pam is a very cool, Balkan-inflected band that’s heavy on the horns.
