Their name may remind you of some Jewish charity or the other, but Emunah are far from being a hand me down Jewish band, in fact they are at the forefront of Jewish music in the UK with an infectious blend of trip hop, rap and breakbreats.
Based out of Cambridge and currently recording and performing as a seven piece, Emunah has been delivering homegrown Jewish music for several years and in the process have built up a steady and growing following.
Think The Streets mixing it up with some Jewish themes, and you'll get the picture. Emunah deal with issues of Jewish identity and community in 21st century Britain.
Their current self-titled and self-released EP offers an eclectic fusion of sounds from traditional fiddling to haunting sephardi style female singing.
If you want to hear what Jewish music can sound like when it's allowed to be experimental, Emunah deliver the goods. They are inspired by the present and are not afraid to blend that with their Jewish background to offer something that is different, refreshing and enjoyable.
