Synopsis

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 and David Bowie. Learning of Indian roots in his family, Fine departs on a journey of rediscovery, setting out for India to explore new sounds and collaborate with local musicians. Discovering a world of Jewish music in India, Fine performs there with Israeli musicians such as Shye Ben Tzur and Gil Ron Shama 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.
