Jewish multicultural musical project
LIMONCHIKI is a series of events combining interviews and discussions with artists and musicians, with live performances. The purpose is to explore the processes of which modern music culture creation is comprised, and to dig into cross-cultural influences and traditional ethnic expressions. Artists and musicians from different countries meet on stage with their Israeli colleagues, exposing Israeli public to a moment of creation of a new musical language and the influence of cross-cultural experiences on modern Jewish culture in general.
