About the Film:
Known as the Jimi Hendrix of bass guitar, Israeli bassist and producer Yossi Fine has recorded and produced music with artists from across the globe, including Lou Reed, pop icons David Bowie and Madonna, Gil Evans, and Naughty by Nature. The son of a European Jew from Lithuania and a Parisian mom, whose parents were both black from Martinique, Fine recently learned that his grandfather was Indian, and departs on a journey of rediscovery. He travels to India to explore new sounds and collaborate with local musicians, where he unexpectedly reconnects with Israeli musicians Shye Ben Tzur and Gil Ron Shama. Together, they discover a world of Jewish music and perform in some of the country’s holiest places. In her first feature-length documentary, Canadian filmmaker Rebekah Reiko offers a lively and joyous musical journey.
