Founded in 2003 in Riga, Latvia, and led by vocalist Sasha Lurje and keyboardist/arranger Ilya Shneyveys, Forshpil represents Yiddishland, a legendary country where shtetl musicians play electric guitars, and traditional Yiddish ballads are as popular as rock anthems. If Pink Floyd and The Doors had ever jammed together at a Jewish wedding, it would have sounded something like this.
