The Wolf Of Baghdad

Monday 22nd October 2018

The Wolf Of Baghdad
Monday 11th December

London-based musician Carol Isaacs, also known as cartoonist The Surreal McCoy, has created The Wolf Of Baghdad, an audio-visual project that traces her Iraqi-Jewish family’s memories of their lost homeland. A graphic memoir with its own musical soundtrack by new Judeo-Arabic ensemble 3Ayin, excerpts from the work in progress will be performed at the Laydeez Do Comics event on Monday December 11th 2017.

3Ayin are Daniel Jonas (Los Desterrados), multi-instrumentalist and vocals; Keith Clouston (Rivers Of Babylon), oud; Guy Schalom (Baladi Blues Ensemble and Hamsa), percussion; Carol Isaacs, accordion (London Klezmer Quartet and Hamsa). Repertoire is taken from the music the Jews of Iraq would have been familiar with – from songs by the Al Kuwaiti brothers to piyyutim (Jewish liturgical poems).
