Campaign by
Saul Kaye
CA, USA

International touring Artist Saul Kaye is pioneering a new genre of music: JEWISH BLUES. Like his great-grandfather who blazed a trail from Russia to South Africa to trade cattle between warring African Tribes, Saul has brought together the sounds of the struggle of the African Slaves in this country with the history of the Jewish slavery experience. If you can imagine Muddy Waters meets Shlomo Carlebach, you've got an artist here who is bringing something new to modern Jewish Music and bridging the gap between the Delta and the Torah. On his latest Cd, On his latest Cd Jewish Blues Volume IV, Down home Nigguns and other songs from the family tree, Kaye digs deeper into the connection between Delta, Country Blues Folk and the Jewish Experience www.saulkaye.com
