YOM & THE WONDER RABBIS (re-creation)

Yom & The Wonder Rabbis debut album With Love was released in 2011. At the time, the project clearly marked the rise of a new stage and a new generation of musicians producing a music that unashamedly blended their passions for music from elsewhere, surprising and different, with a claimed pop-culture.
