The melding of minds and cultures, “Punklezmerap” is an explosive concoction of classic Klezmer clarinet, an energetic and up tempo club beat, and a hypnotic, wordless chorus sung by artist, activist and author Nomy Lamm. “Punklezmerap” is a musical Mazel tov cocktail. Rapid-fire lyrics carry listeners through Eprhyme‘s early life experience, evolving sense of identity and artistic development. Moving through hip-hop, punk rock and jazz, the song culminates in a kaleidoscope of creative elements that compose Eprhyme‘s current state.
And wait a minute – isn’t that Arrington de Dionyso in the background playing bass clarinet?
