Jinta-la-Mvta

Jinta-la-Mvta is a unique ensemble that combines its own roots in Japanese folkloric music traditions with influences from Jewish, Greek, Balkan and American musical traditions. The group has developed a singular sound that combines the Japanese Chindon-ya style (a kind of street music marching band) that was often used as a vehicle for commercial advertising with other marching band and street music styles from other cultures and parts of the world, such as Jewish klezmer music and New Orleans jazz.

Co-presented with the Ashkenaz Festival. Sponsored by the Japan Foundation
