From ram’s horn to beatbox, THE WANDERING MUSE explores the kaleidoscope of Jewish identities through the ever-changing music of the Jewish diaspora.

In an alternative Argentinean bar, two friends play tango-infused klezmer. Ugandan villagers chant Hebrew prayers in East African harmonies. At a Montreal party, an artist mixes hip-hop and jazz with cantorial singing in a multilingual tour de force. In a Berlin apartment, an American and a Russian sing an anti-Zionist song from the 1920’s.

The film is a series of encounters with Jewish musicians from across the world. As stereotypes are shattered and expectations up-ended, each scene brings us closer to discovering the nomadic soul in a borderless world of harmonies. With the traditional and the contemporary in continuous dialogue, THE WANDERING MUSE attends the dynamic birth of new Jewish music.
